AS I LOOKED DOWN INTO THE FACE OF AN OLD ST OF GOD
I THO'T YOUR RACE IS FINISHED YOUR LIFE CROWN IS WON
SEPARATED FOR THE PRESENT BUT SOON WE'LL MEET AGAIN
FOR HE'S ONLY GONE AWAY WITH A FRIEND.

GONE AWAY WITH A FRIEND, SOMEONE CLOSER THAN A BROTHER...SOMEONE WHO LOVE HIM MORE THAN SISTER ,DAD, OR MOTHER AND AND HE HOLDS OUR VERY SOUL IN THE PALM OF HIS HAND FOR HE'S ONLY GONE AWAY WITH A FRIEND

......THIS MAY BE SOME OF THE WORD IF IT IS THE RIGHT SONG...I MAY REMEMBER 2ND VERY LATER BUT CAN'T AT THIS MOMENT.

I believe the second verse goes:

Now He's my constant companion, through life's joys and life's pains
All my hopes and my fears, I hold in His dear name.
And when my soul breathes free from the ties that bind me here
I'll be gone away with Jesus, no other friend so dear.

Anyway, that's Ralph Stanley's version

Gone away with a friend

Verse I
I looked into the face of an old saint of God, I thought your race is finished your life's crown is won. Separated for the present but soon to live again he's only gone away with a friend.

Chorus
Gone away with a friend, someone closer than a brother, someone who loves you more than children, dad, or mother he holds your very soul in the palm of his hand, let it read on my tomb stone, gone away with a friend.

Verse II
Now He's my constant companion, through life's joys and life's pains all my hopes and my fears, I hold in His dear name.
And when my soul breathes free from the ties that bind me here
I'm going away with Jesus, no other friend so dear.

Chorus

I've been singing this song for over 30 years now; I know the author of the song personally; in correction to the version listed..it was originally penned

Gone away with a friend

Verse I
As I looked down into the face of an old saint of God, I thought your race is over your life's crown is won. Separated for the present but soon to meet again and he's(she's) only gone away with a friend.

Chorus
Gone away with a friend, someone closer than a brother, with somebody who loves me more than children, dad, or mother and he holds my very soul in the palm of his hand, let it read on my tomb stone, gone away with a friend.

2nd verse " A constant companion, through life's joy and pain all my hopes and all my dreams, I trust to your dear name. And when my soul breaks free from the ties that hold me here gone away with Jesus, no other friend so dear.

here is how it is wrote in the baptist songbook

Gone away with a friend

Verse I
As I looked into the face of an old saint of God,
I thought he raised and he did.
Separated for the present but soon to meet again and he's only gone away with a friend.

Chorus
Gone away with a friend,
someone closer than a brother,
someone who loves me more than children, dad, or mother
he holds my very soul in the palm of his hand, let it read on my tomb stone, gone away with a friend.

2nd verse
" now he's my constant companion,
through life's joy and pain all my hopes and my tears i hold in his dear name,
And when my soul breaks free from the ties that hold me here gone
away with Jesus, no greater friend so dear.

Verse 1:
I looked into the face of an old saint of God
I thought he'd raise and he did
His life crown he'd won
Separated for the present, but soon to live again
He's only gone away with a friend

Chorus:
Gone away with a friend
Someone closer than a brother
Someone who loves you more then children, dad, or mother
He holds you very close in the palm of his hand
Let it read on my tombstone "Gone Away With a Friend"

Verse 2:
Now he's my constant companion
Through life's joy and life's pain
All my hopes and my tears
I hold in his dear name
And when my soul breathes free from the ties that bind me here
I'm going away with Jesus
No greater friend so dear

Chorus
