Gone Away with a Friend
I thought your race is finished, your life's crown is won.
Separated for the present, but, soon to live again.
He's only gone away with a Friend.
Gone away with a Friend, someone closer than a brother,
Someone who loves you more, than children, dad or mother.
He holds your very soul in the palm of His hand.
Let read on my tombstone, Gone Away with a Friend.
Now He's my constant companion, through life's joys and
life's pains, all my hopes and my fears, I hold in His dear name.
And when my soul breathes free from the ties that bind me here.
I'm going away with Jesus, no other Friend so dear.
