My Closest Friend

My Closest Friend

I place my hope in you
For you alone are Lord
There could never be another
I could ever love more

There’s no one that comes closer
To you in my life
For you are my closest friend
In whom I can confide

And share my deepest longings
My hurts and my fears
Knowing you will understand
And wipe away my tears

Knowing I can come to you
Morning, noon and night
You will never turn me away
But give ear to my plight

And you will not condemn me
Nor judge what I say
For you are full of constant love
And listen when I pray

Your love was such that you died
My soul you came to save
From certain eternal misery
Awaiting beyond the grave

But now in you I can be sure
Of eternity with you
Freed from pain and misery
With eternal joy too.
