Thank God For You

Thank God for you, good friend of mine,
Seldom is friendship such as thine,
How very much I wish to be
As helpful as you've been to me ---
Thank God for you

Of many prayer guests, one thou art
On whom I ask God to impart
Rich blessings from His storehouse rare,
And grant to you His gracious care ---
Thank God for you

When I recall from time to time,
How you inspired this heart of mine,
I find myself inclined to pray,
God bless my friend this very day ---
Thank God for you

So often at the throne of Grace,
There comes a picture of your face
And then, instinctively, I pray
That God may guide you all the way ---
Thank God for you

Some day I hope, with you to stand
Before the throne at God's right hand,
And say to you --- at journey's end,
"Praise God, you've been to me a friend"--
Thank God for you
