Circle of Friends
Point of Grace

We were made to love and be loved
But the price this world demands will cost you far too much
I spent so many years just trying to fit in (1)
Now Ive found a place in this circle of friends
In a circle of friends we have one Father (2)
In a circle of friends we share this prayer
That every orphaned soul will know
And all will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends

If you weep, I will weep with you
If you sing for joy the rest of us will lift our voices too (3)
But no matter what you feel inside theres no need to pretend
Thats the way it is in this circle of friends
In a circle of friends
We have one father
In a circle of friends we share this prayer
That well gather together no matter how the highway bends
I will not lose this circle of friends
Among the nations, tribes and tongues we have sisters and brothers
And when we meet in heaven we will recognize each other
With joy so deep and love so sweet
Oh well celebrate these friends
And a life that never ends
In a prayer
That will not be long before
All will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends
That it will not be long before
All will enter in
To the shelter of this circle of friends

from “Life, Love and Other Mysteries”, Point of Grace, 1996

(1) – Lizz – remember what we talked about? 🙂 BTW, when are we going to see Malcolm again? ;-p

(2) – This refers to God of course, but we all know who our Poppa is, too 🙂

(3) – Well, I don’t think you guys would actually want me to sing 🙂
