Friend (Cheryl’s Song)

I wrote this song a while ago for a musical, for which I wrote the music. I loved the song so much that I wanted to use it in other contexts. Originally two girls sang the song as an expression of their friendship towards each other. However, I have come to realize that the friend in the song is very much Jesus. My good friend Cheryl has had some unbelievable things happen to her in her life and no matter now dark and unclear things get and no matter how uncertain life can be, she finds solace in the arms of Jesus.  My daughter Bethany is singing and the harmony she sings came out the blue, a few minutes before she had to leave to go back to college. For me, it was a God moment. I hope whoever hears this song, will be encouraged.
