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

Gone away with a friend, someone closer than a brother
Someone who loves you more than 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.

Now He's my constant companion through life's joy and life’s pain
All my hopes and my cares I hold in His dear name
And when my soul breaks free from the ties that bind me here
I'm goin’ away with Jesus no greater friend so dear
