I’d rather have your friendship than the world,
For in your company I have no need;
Both time and space may stop and come unfurled,
But when I am with you my soul is freed.
No greater love exists than yours, my friend;
You gave your life so I might have it, too.
You said you’ll be with me until the end,
And from your blood eternity then grew.
You live within the form of others here;
I feel your presence when I talk with them.
They’re closer than my family, twice as dear,
More precious than the most expensive gem.
You are my Friend, my Savior and my King,
You’re Christ my Lord, the One in everything.
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24 KJV
