My Friend ~ 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.
