Greater Love



Here he lies before me
My friend for many years
He saved me from the water
Now I'm drowning in my tears
Grief is but a poor word for everything I feel
There can be no greater love
He was there to guide me through the follies of my age
Always there beside me everything forgave
Held me as a father showing me the way
There can be no greater love
No fear did he have before the storm
The fate of others was his only thought
And though it was the way to certain darkness
To save my life he gave his own
For my life he gave his own
And these words are writ in stone where he lies
"greater love hath no man than this
That a man lay down his life for his friend"
"greater love hath no man than this
That a man lay down his life for his friend"
"greater love hath no man than this
That a man lay down his life for his friend."
