I got a call from an old friend
We laughed about how we had changed
But I could tell things weren’t going
As well as he claimed

He tried to hide his feelings
But they only gave him away
The longer I listened
The more I kept wishing that
I knew the right words to say

Can You reach my friend?
Bring his searching to an end
Lord, I know You love him
Help him understand

Can You reach my friend?
You’re the only One who can
Help him give his heart to You

We talked for more than an hour
I smiled when he mentioned Your name
I said that I knew You
I told him the difference You made

But he never thought he would need You
But maybe he’s changing his mind
As we said goodbye, Lord, he told me that I had found
Something that he’d like to find

So can You reach my friend?
You’re the only One who can, oh
Lord, I know You love him
Help him understand

Can You reach my friend?
You’re the only One who can, oh
Help him give his heart to You

Maybe he’s ready tonight
Lord, he said that he might
Make a call on You, oh yes
My Lord, I wanna know

Can You reach my friend?
Bring his searching to an end
Lord, I know, I know that You love him
So help him understand

Can You reach my friend?
Bring his searching to an end
Help him give his heart to You
Help him give his heart to You

    Sometimes we cannot do things on our own will, its only by faith and believing that god is the only one who can change the hearts of those in dispear. Can you reach my friend is a call to god to reach out to the person I care about and help them change their heart, help them feel the presence of the holy spirit, the power and presence of god.
