AD lyrics - The Only Way To Have A Friend

AD
"The Only Way To Have A Friend"

Deep in every heart there's a desire
Just to be accepted as we are
Everybody needs to know that he's wanted
But everybody's always wanting more

The Son of God came down to be a servant
The world did not receive Him as a King
And if we take the Lord as our example
It ain't how much you get, it's what you bring

You got to show somebody your salvation
Show someone the mercy you've been shown
And if you heed the very first commandment
You'll take your brothers burdens as your own

The only way to have a friend is to be one

If men could see our faith turned into action
The way the Lord intended it to be
If flesh and blood were dying in the Spirit
Then Jesus would be plain for all to see

The words of our own mouths will be our judgement
The measure that we use will be returned
We hear the Word but how much do we do it?
We hear the Word but how much have we learned?

The only way to have a friend is to be one

You got to show somebody your salvation
Show someone the mercy you've been shown
And if you heed the very first commandment
You'll take your brothers burdens as your own

The only way to have a friend is to be one
