Friends (Robert Thiessen)

Friends (Robert Thiessen)

They say I never should have made it

And that mom she was so young

I wouldn’t know I can’t remember

She gave me up when I was one

So many homes so many problems

I always put the blame on me

Thinking that it must be my fault

Cause I was never meant to be

Then it all changed one summer night

I heard about Jesus for the first time

And let me tell you about these friends of mine

They said they loved me

No one had ever said they loved me

Now…..

Chorus

I am a life that’s been changed

I am a soul that’s been saved

Servants answering the call

Choosing God above it all

Willing vessels pouring out

Cast aside all fear and doubt

Showing love until the end

Let me tell you about my friends

I can’t believe I finally made it

I can’t believe that I’m the one

20 children call me teacher

The school year has just begun

I always thought I was a failure

How I could never change the world?

How could someone so inadequate

make a difference for the Lord?

Then it all changed one summer night

I told a child about Jesus for the first time

And let me tell you about these friends of mine

they said they trust me

No had ever said they trusted me

And…..

Repeat Chorus

It’s not something that’s measured by numbers or years

By the blisters or the teardrops and all the pain we feel down here

But only when we get to heaven and his glory is revealed

And another precious child of Jesus comes in singing through Heaven’s door

Saying…..

Repeat Chorus
