The Truest Gifts

The truest gifts come from deep within.
They cannot be bought with silver or gold.

The truest gifts come from deep within.
Where we cherish new friends
and treasure the old.

For friends are treasures beyond compare,
We are rich with just a few.

And friends are the ones whose courage lasts
when lesser men are through.

The truest gifts come from deep within,
they cannot be stolen by thieves.

For the greatest burdens
find rest with a friend
And our greatest fears relieved.
