I have a friend in Yankee town
That seeks to live
And be God’s hand
Giving all she has

Willing to be the one
That sacrifices her life
To build the lives of those
You’ve entrusted to her

She brings a joy
With every step
Delightful ways
Willing help

Building up her man
She is his helping hand
The two live as one
Serving Christ each day

They give more than they have
Confident the Lord will care
To help them as they serve
Living to be His word

Facing outrageous odds
They commit to their God
To share with all
So others may not fall

Joy, faith and peace
Like a necklace grace their life
Bending a calloused knee
Always seeking His advice
