- Friendship! Oh treasure, rich, inestimable,
- Bright emanation from the courts of love.
- To cheer the gloom of man's poor fallen state,
- And render life supportable; Oh flame
- Enkindled in the souls of the redeemed,
- To burn forever and forever, where
- Its light can ne'er be dimmed; nor blight, nor change
- Plant [them] in its beam.
- Friendship! Dear name
- Oh how its mellow cadence strikes the strings,
- Of the deep feelings of the inmost soul,
- And stirs them up to music, and to heaven.
- Friendship! How dear and hallowed is the sound
- 'Tis like the full rich burden of delight
- That presses on the morning breeze,
- The stream that gushes from the rocky mountain side,
- To cheer the fainting traveler; the voice
- Of sweet forgiveness to the weeper's heart.
- The gentle touching of that syren power,
- Sweet hope with all its promises and smiles.
- Cindarella M. Gregory
