I am looking for sheet music to this song. It is an old song and I don't know who recorded it, but has a very powerful message. Some of the words in the song are........My friend I stand in judgement now and feel that youre to blame somehow. While on this earth I walked with you day by day. ..............And now I stand this day condemned because you failed to mention him. You taught me many things that's true. I called you friend and trusted you.........these are some of the words. Maybe not exactly as they were in the song, but this should give you the message in the song. Please let me know what you find out. Thanks. AR

Some people came to my church that had recorded this song, and I loved it. It was sang bt "The Warrens". I know I have the cassette tape. I was looking for the lyrics myself, as I don't have a cassete player.

My friend I stand in judgement now and feel that your the blame somehow on earth I walked beside you day by day. You could have lead me straight to him, my knowledge then was very dim, but never once did you show me the way. I called you friend, but that was then when we were young and best of friends living here on good old mother earth, but its to late you sealed my fate I'll never see those pearly gates (I can't remember the next part). And now I'm lost forever, I'm burning in this awful place. I'm suffering so much pain here, and through it all I see your face. I just know bits and pieces. I need to find my tape and take it to my mom's and listen to it.

My Friend - by D.J. Higgins



My friend, I stand in judgment now

And feel that you're to blame somehow

While on this earth I walked with you day by day

And never did you point the way

You knew the Lord in truth and glory

But never did you tell the story

My knowledge then was very dim

You could have led me safe to him

Though we lived together here on earth

You never told me of your second birth

And now I stand this day condemned

Because you failed to mention him

You taught me many things, that's true

I called you friend and trusted you

But now I learned, now it's too late

You could have kept me from this fate

We walked by day and talked by night

And yet you showed me not the light

You let me live, love and die

And all the while you knew I'd never live on high

Yes, I called you friend in life

And trusted you in joy and strife

Yet in coming to this end

I see you really weren't my friend

YOU WERE ONCE MY FRIEND

MY FRIEND, I STAND IN JUDGMENT NOW
AND FEEL THAT YOU'RE TO BLAME SOMEHOW
ON EARTH I WALKED BESIDE YOU DAY BY DAY
YOU COULD HAVE LED ME STRAIGHT TO HIM
MY KNOWLEDGE THEN WAS VERY DIM
BUR NEVER ONCE DID YOU SHOW ME THE WAY

I CALLED YOU FRIEND BUT THAT WAS THEN
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND BEST OF FRIENDS
LIVING THERE ON GOOD OLE MOTHER EARTH
BUT IT'S TOO LATE - YOU'VE SEALED MY FATE
I'LL NEVER SEE THOSE PEARLY GATES
YOU NEVER TOLD ME OF THE SECOND BIRTH

1ST CHORUS
AND NOW I'M LOST FOREVER I'M BURNING IN THIS AWFUL PLACE
I'M SUFFERING SO MUCH PAIN HERE AND THRU IT ALL I SEE YOUR FACE
I'M GLAD YOU'RE BOUND FOR HEAVEN AND YOU WON'T REACH THIS BITTER END
OH IT'S SO HARD TO STAY HERE - KNOWING THAT YOU WERE ONCE MY FRIEND

YOU TAUGHT ME MANY THINGS THAT'S TRUE
I CALLED YOU FRIEND, I TRUSTED YOU
WE WALKED BY DAY AND TALKED A LOT AT NIGHT
BUT NOW I KNOW THAT IT'S TOO LATE
YOU COULD HAVE KEPT ME FROM THIS FATE
AND SHOWN ME HOW TO WALK IN PATHS OF LIGHT

YOU LET ME LIVE AND LOVE AND DIE
YOU KNEW I'D NEVER LIVE ON HIGH
AND NOW I STAND THIS DAY AT LAST CONDEMNED.
YES, I CALLED YOU MY FRIEND IN LIFE
AND TRUSTED YOU THRU JOY AND STRIFE,
BUT NOW I FIND THAT YOU WERE NOT MY FRIEND.

2ND CHORUS
SO TELL OUR FRIENDS ABOUT THE LORD SO THEY WILL MISS THIS AWFUL PLACE.
SO THEY WON'T SUFFER SO MUCH PAIN, AND IN THEIR SUFFERING SEE YOUR FACE
ALTHOUGH YOU'RE BOUND FOR HEAVEN AND YOU WON'T REACH THIS BITTER END
GO BRING YOUR FRIENDS TO JESUS AND THEN THEY'LL ALWAYS CALL YOU FRIEND
TAG: SO BRING YOUR FRIENDS TO JESUS AND THEN THEY'LL ALWAYS CALL YOU FRIEND
