Words and music by Bob Hartman

I can be friends with you
There's no better friend that a man can know
I can be friends with you
And I feel so special
'Cause it's you I know

I don't know the governor
Even though I'm a resident
I don't rub shoulders with the dignities
Or shake hands with the President

And I know I can be with you
And I don't have to wait in line
You're the author and creator of all the world
And a personal friend of mine

When I have a problem
I can always come to You
Regardless of the situation
I know You know what to do
You put Your arm around and speak so tenderly
And I feel better just to know You care
And you took the time for me

Greater love has no man than this
That a man lay his life down for his friend
But You laid down for all the world to see
And You proved Your love for me

I'm no special person
I've got nothing to offer You
But You treat me like I'm the only one
With whom you have to do
You're closer than a brother
And You're with me every day
I love You 'cause You first loved me
And I'm glad that I can say
