Among the great and glorious gifts
our heavenly Father sends
Is the gift of understanding
that we find in loving friends,

For, somehow, in the generous heart
of loving, faithful friends
The good God in His charity
and wisdom always sends

A sense of understanding
and the power of perception
And mixes these fine qualities
with kindness and affection.

So when we need some sympathy
or a friendly hand to touch,
Or an ear that listens tenderly
and speaks words that mean so much,

We seek our true and trusted friend
in the knowledge that we'll find
A heart that's sympathetic
and an understanding mind,
And often just without a word
there seems to be a union
Of thoughts and kindred feelings
for God gives true friends communion.

Friendships are the fruits
gathered from the trees
planted in the rich soil of love,
and nurtured with tender care
and understanding.
