Well God told Noah to build an ark he said it's gonna rain gonna be dark
Call in the animals two by two and don't let a sinful man go through
So the flood came just like he said and every evil thing on earth was dead
But Noah's faith was like a rock God laid his ark on a mountain top

He'll be a friend and guide you he'll walk along with you
He'll feel it there inside you he'll help you make it through
When things look dark Noah saw the light cause faith had told him right was might
If you need a friend he'll guide you he'll be a friend to you

Well you've heard of Samson the strong man the mightiest man in all the land
There was one purpose for his might he had to deliver the Israelites
By the Philistines he was overcome they tied him up to carry him home
But Samson prayed and his bounds were gone

He killed a thousand with an old jawbone
He'll be a friend and guide you he'll walk along with you
He'll feel it there inside you he'll help you make it through
God showed Samson what to do and it's the same God that stands by you

If you need a friend he'll guide you he'll be a friend to you
