The perfect friend smiles

When happiness is in abundance,

When joy fills the heart.

The perfect friend is sad

When mourning time has come,

When sorrows burden the heart.

The perfect friend has no problems,

And will always listen to yours,

Will always care about yours.

The perfect friend does not exist,

If you haven't figured that out yet,

Because none of us can claim to be perfect.

The only perfect friend I know,

Dwells in Heaven above,

And His name is Jesus.

Jesus listens when I have problems,

And gently guides my heart,

He keeps it from wandering too far.

When I cry,

Jesus wraps His arms around me,

And gives me comfort and peace.

When I am happy,

The sun warms my body,

Jesus is smiling with me.
