The Friend Who Just Stands By (By: B. Y. Williams)

When troubles come your soul to try,

You love the friend who just "stands by."
Perhaps there's nothing he can do;

The thing is strictly up to you;

For there are troubles all your own,

And paths the soul must tread alone;

Times when love can't smooth the road;
Nor friendship lift the heavy load,

But just to know you have a friend

Who will "stand by" until the end,

Whose sympathy through all endures,

Whose warm handclasp is always yours!

It helps, some ways, to pull you through,

Although there's nothing he can do.

And so with fervent heart you cry,

"God bless the friend who just stands by."
