Friends
But we'll keep you close as always;
It won't even seem you've gone,
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong.
And friends are friends forever
If the welcome will not end.
Though it's hard to let you go,
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends.
With the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know,
We will pray the joy you'll life in
Is the strength that now you show.

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you;
Can't believe the hopes he's granted
Means chapter in your life is through.

Chorus
But we'll keep you close as always;
It won't even seem you've gone,
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong.
And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them.
And a friend will not say "never"
'Cause the welcome will not end.
Though it's hard to let you go,
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends.

With the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know,
We will pray the joy you'll life in
Is the strength that now you show.
