The Golden Chain of Friendship

Friendship is a golden chain,

the links are friends so dear,

And like a rare and precious jewel, it's treasured more each year.

It's clasped together firmly

with a love that's deep and true, And it's rich with happy memories and fond recollections, too.

Time can't destroy its beauty,

for as long as memory lives,

Years can't erase the pleasure

that the joy of friendship gives.

For friendship is a priceless gift that can't be bought or sold, And to have an understanding friend is worth far more than gold.

And the golden chain of friendship is a strong and blessed tie Binding kindred hearts together as the years go passing by.
