Abstract

Think of me as your friend, I pray,
And call me by a friendly name!
I will not care what others say
If only you remain the same.
I will not care how dark the night
I will not care how wild the storm!
Your love will fill my heart with light
And shield me close and keep me warm
Think of me as your friend, I pray,
And call me by a friendly name!
I will not care what others say
If only you remain the same.

Think of me as your friend, I pray,
For else my life is little worth!
So shall your memory light my way
Al though we meet no more on earth.
For while I think your faith secure,
I ask no happier fate to see:
Thus to he loved by one so pure,
Is honor rich enough for me!
Think of me as your friend, I pray,
For else my life is little worth!
So shall your memory light my way
Although we meet no more on earth.
