PostSubject: I THOUGHT I GOT SOME FRIENDS   Sat Oct 06, 2018 12:26 pm

I got a family doctor, family lawyer
I got a family pastor, family driver
I thought I got some friends – O Lord!
I thought I got some friends.
 
I got a family house, family farm
I got a family name, family members
I thought I got some friends – O Lord!
I thought I got some friends.
 
But now that my pillar is down
An orphan is my new name
My relatives and friends, are gazing at me
When I bow down they take everything – O My Lord!
 
Cover me O Mighty Lord
Cover me with the Blood of Jesus Christ
Those I guarantee to be my lifetime friends
Are now my enemies
 
O Mighty Lord! Be on my side
Those said to be friends
Are indeed Parasites!
