Where do you find good people—how do you pick them out?
Would you trust a stranger on the street and never feel any doubt?
If you’re looking for a friend or a spouse,
You can look everywhere from house to house
And still be unsure about those within—
Whether they’re righteous or steeped in sin;
But if were to join the church down the street,
You could probably depend on the people you meet;
So pick out your friend at church—not the bar—
The odds there are better, much better by far;
And when you have a need and must hold out your hand,
Who do you think will understand?
Your friends at the church will be there for you;
They’ll give you a hand and pray for you too;
They’ll stand at the ready to provide what you need
For friends made in church are good friends indeed.
