Friends in unexpected places


On days that are sunny
When skies are all blue
Friends aren’t hard to find
They come looking for you

But when nights are as black
As an abandoned coal mine
There are few who show up
With a smile that is kind

But from forgotten old corners
Of our lives shines a light
From unexpected people
God sends grace for the fight

Small people like David
Young fishers like Andrew
Short ones like Zacceus
Blind folks like Bartimaeus

Shy ones like Mary
Bold prophets like John
Wild women like Rahab
Poor farmers like Gideon

From here and from there
From high and from low
From the least of this world
Our Lord sends us hope

So thank Him for angels
He sends in disguise
He knows what we need
When tears flood our eyes

He’s watching our struggles
He walks at our side
The Lord of our vineyard
Sends us friends in the night!
