Twila Paris - Faithful Friend lyrics

Everyone knows you as a man of honor
I am glad to know you simply as a friend
You've always taken time to be my brother
And I'll be standing by you in the end

But I will never put you on a pedestal
I thank the Lord for everything you do
I'll be there to pray for you and for the ones you love
I believe that He will finish all he started in you.

Chorus (Female only):
I will be an open door that you can count on
Anywhere you are, anywhere you've been
I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be a faithful friend

I am one of many whose path has been made clear
By the light you've carried faithfully as a warrior and a child
God has used you greatly to encourage and inspire
And you've remained a true friend all the while

So I will never put you on a pedestal
Cause we both know all the glory is the Lord's
But I'll be there to pray that He will keep you by his grace
And I always will remind you to be seeking His face

Chorus (Female and Male)

Should there ever come a time to cry
I will weep with you
And every single time you win
I'm celebrating too

(Female and Male)
Oh, I will celebrate with you

Chorus (Both)

I will be faithful

Oooh I will be a faithful friend
