He's My Father, He's My Friend
Copyright 2004 Ron Barnes

When the walls are closing in and I think that I've reached the end
And I don't know how I can face another day,
When I see my bills are due and I don't know what to do
And I can't seem to chase the clouds away.

When my friends have let me down, He picks me up off the ground
And gives me strength so I can find my way again.
He is always there for me. When I need Him, He'll always be
My rock. Yes, He's my Father. He's my friend.

With my Father there by my side, I feel a happiness deep inside.
I know he can turn the tide and calm the raging wind.

He's the one who is always there. He's the answer to all my prayers.
I feel so grateful I don't know where to begin.
I will praise Him forever more because I am so grateful for
My rock. Yes, He's my Father. He's my friend.


He sent Jesus to show the way and I am thankful every day
For the Son of God my Father cared enough to send.

So I study His word each day and I hear what he has to say.
He leads me to a kingdom that will never end.
He is always there for me as He leads me to victory,
My rock. Yes, He's my Father. He's my friend.

My feet are on solid ground ever since the day I found
My rock. Yes, He's my Father. He's my friend.
