Friends Lyrics - Michael W. Smith

Review The Song (31)

Words: Deborah D. Smith
Music: Michael W. Smith

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
Can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter in your life is through
But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
sponsored links
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long to live as friends.

With the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know
We will pray the joy you'll live in
Is the strength that now you show

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

In memory of Kevin Clonts, my son | Reviewer: Debra Clonts | 11/24/13

When I think back on my son's time on this earth. Memories of his baptism at church camp. And the joy and peace that filled my heart and soul. That whatever the future on this earth held in store for Kevin. Having Christ as his savior, I would have ETERNITY to spend with him. I remember what an impact this song, "Friends", had on him. There were teenage problems, girl problems, and just everyday struggles. But to bring a peace to his soul, all he had to do is to listen to "Friends". As Kevin matured in a man,"Friends", continued to be one of his favorite songs. After his death, I reflected on Kevin's time here on this earth. I am so grateful for Christian Artists that take the time, and sacrifices to bring , God's message in song. After all, in the darkness of our troubles, who hasn't been strengthened and renewed by a song that has touched .....their soul.....again, I say thanks

SONG OF JOY | Reviewer: Joyful Mom&Dad | 1/12/13

When my son was married he asked me to pick the mother son song.I'm mom and I new right away what song.He was a hard headed teen and young adult and his dad and I would worry, at times feared for his life . Then prayers answered I read something he wrote in his Bible that i don't think I saw since i had given to him "I will try" .When he made his decision to follow God what a joy no matter where he goes "into the fathers hands we know!"

aftermath | Reviewer: alicia | 12/17/12

regrouping my middle schoolers back to school on Mon after "Newtown". Encouraging them to designate it as HUG A FRIEND Day in honor of all the students. They feel helpless and want to do something. This song came to mind and I am introducing it to them, printing lyrics for their lockers. Thank you again Michael and Deborah!

Friends Lyrics | Reviewer: Llam | 3/27/12

I remember this song when I sing this during the graduation of our Vocation School in the village. The guest speaker did not come so she assigned me to do her part. It was so heart warming seeing the people of the village (old and young)to welcome us to their village. God bless them... Though we stayed for a couple of days but if posibble they dont want us to leave them.

Kathleen, my bestfriend moved to Heaven... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/3/11

This song is for my bestfriend Kathleen Sue Hale, who moved to heaven in 2008, after a four and half year battle against breast cancer. I miss her like the desert misses the rain. But, it won't be long till we are all reunited again and she's showing me all the great places to shop. I can hardly wait!

The most beautiful song ever... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/24/11

This song is so beautiful that I burst out crying. I remember hearing this song at a retreat for the end of sixth grade a while ago and it made me cry. Next year we will move onto Junior High and some friends I might see again in high school and others I might never ever see again...Anyways, beautiful song...

Heart and Soul =One beautiful song! | Reviewer: Pamela Haldane | 10/18/10

I first heard this song back in 1987;a friend of mine was a fan but I hadnt heard of MWS. The song instantly resonated with me.All these years later it still moves me in a way few songs do.Its universal in its appeal in part because it was written from the heart and truly inspired by the friendship Michael and Deborah just rings true so its not surprise its beautiful melody and lyrics will go on touching lives! One of the very best songs Michael W Smith has ever sang!!!!!!!!

Friends | Reviewer: janan | 9/5/10

My friend was murdered. We sung this song during our youth camp. It reminded me of him and how happy he was to sing this song. It brings me to tears but I have the assurance that I will see in heaven. I miss you Lou Dellero.

Chief Logan Boy Scout Reservation, Ohio | Reviewer: Fred | 8/4/09

Friends are Forever is a slogan at camp, and has been for may years. This is part of why Chief Logan is a great camp, with a great staff. I have just returned from 6 weeks at camp where we sing "FRIENDS" at every Friday night camp fire after seeing a slide show of this weeks friendships. I am an older scouter (62), and can see how Friends are Forever has made a difference in both past and present campers and staff! What a great song to live by. GOD bless.

Graduation song class of 97 | Reviewer: Soulforged | 6/9/09

High school tradition is the choir sang this song at every graduation ceremony. It was ok, but never had an impact on me. Years later (about 2 yrs ago) my daughters best friend (16yrs old) died a tragic death, this song was played at his funeral and it hit home for me. MWS has been a huge inspiration for me ever since. God bless.

Tribute | Reviewer: Irene | 5/1/09

'Friends' was part of my tribute to my dearest friend Maureen, who recently passed away. We have been friends for only 19 years, but it has been a lifetime friendship. This beautiful song, represented everything about our God given friendship. Thank you Michael, for this song and the gift God has given you. God Bless.

friends | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/10/09

friends moves me to tears anytime I listen to it, and i always pray to be kind of friend God wants me to be "a friend forever". I believe it is an inspiration from the best of all fiends (GOD) Himself.

MB | Reviewer: Henry | 2/18/09

This song has been being sung by my marching band for years. Several years ago there was someone in the band that got killed. Since then this song has been an inspirational song that we all love. then this most recent season our band was in st. george utah for a competition and we heard the news that a girl at our school had been killed while we were away. i think that when we sang it after we got back that it was the best i had ever heard it and i felt i could kind of relate to how the kids felt years ago the first time. this song is so wonderful i would recommend it to anybody.

Friends | Reviewer: Laura | 8/14/08

I love the song. The lyrics are beautiful. It was played at my friend's funeral. She died a hero protecting her mother from an abusive husband. Her mom survived and she is in Heaven. I know that one day we meet again.
