Your Friend

    “Your Friend,” New Era, Aug. 2002, 51

    Your Friend

    He drank the bitter cup

    shed blood in a garden

    and died

    because He loves you.

    Fear not, dear child,

    your Friend is always near,

    and the light shall guide you to His bosom,

    comfort you in His embrace,

    brush away the tears,

    and the frailties of mortality

    will be washed away in His sacrifice

    for you.
