Lord, I lift my friend to You, I’ve done all that I know to do

I lift my friend to You

Complicated circumstances have clouded his view

Lord, I lift my friend up to You

 

I fear that I won’t have the words that he needs to hear

I pray for Your wisdom, oh God, and a heart that’s sincere

Lord, I lift my friend up to You

Lord, I lift my friend to You

 

My best friend in the world, I know he means much more to You

I want so much to help him, but this is something he has to do

And Lord, I lift my friend up to You

 

‘Cause there’s a way that seems so right to him

But You know where that leads

He’s becoming a puppet of the world, too blind to see the strings

Lord, I lift my friend up to You

My friend up to You

 

Lord, I lift my friend to You,

I’ve done all that I know to do

I lift my friend to You
