My bark of life was tossing down the troubled stream of time.
When first I saw your smiling face, when youth was in its prime.
Then life's dark hours were turned to light-my sorrowed heart was free-
And since that time I've always found you've been a friend to me.

I'll ne'er forget where'er I roam, wherever you may be.
If ever I have had a friend, you've been a friend to me.

Misfortune nursed me as her child, and loved me fondly, too;
I would have had a broken heart, had it not been for you.
Kind words were whispered softly sweet, but glad I could not be.
Until I found that you had been a faithful friend to me.-Chorus.

The light of hope from your bright eyes dispelled the clouds of strife.
And shed their rays of sunshine down my weary path in life;
I now look back upon the past, across life's stormy sea,
And smile to think, 'mid all life's scenes, you've been a friend to me.-Cho.
