Can we be friends?
I don’t want to be just Your child but Your friend as well
I want to be Your delight
To bring a smile to Your face
To know You
Friends who share secrets
Share the craziest ideas
Friends who sit quietly together
Who understand what is not being said
I want You to be the first one that I call when the good news come in
And the first one that I call when the bad news come in
A look between us would amount to many words
I could use a friend, dear Lord
I would like to be friends with the sovereign and all-powerful God
Maker of heaven and earth
It has happened before that men become friends of God
So I dare ask, can we be friends dear Lord?
With God all things are possible
The way has already been paved
Through my Lord Jesus Christ .
