Faithful Friends

Everyone knows you as a man of honor
I am glad to know you simply as a friend.
You've always taken time to be my brother
And I'll be standing by you in the end!

But I will never put you on a pedestal --
I thank the Lord for everything you do.


I'll be there to pray for you and for the ones you love
I believe that He will finish all He's started in you!

I will be an open door that you can count on,
Anywhere you are -- anywhere you've been!

I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be your faithful friend.

I am one of many whose path has been made clearer
By the light you've carried faithfully as a warrior and a child.

God has used you greatly to encourage and inspire --
You've remained a true friend all the while!

So I will never put you on a pedestal
Cause we both know all the glory is the Lord's.

And I'll be there to pray that He will keep you by His grace
And I always will remind you to be seeking His face!

I will be an open door that you can count on
Anywhere you are -- anywhere you've been.

I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be a faithful friend
Should it ever come your time to mourn
I will weep with you;

And every single time you win--
I'm celebrating, too!!

I will be an open door that you can count on
Anywhere you are -- Anywhere you've been
I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be a faithful friend.

I will be a faithful friend.

Oh! How beautiful, Bethany! You did such a wonderful job with the pics! :-) I like the shot of the bridal party "floating" above the ground in front of the church. And the one of them dancing is so simple and yet so sweet. Congratulations on a job well done!

Blessings,
Dianna
