This is a powerful song! Imagine having someone in your life that would help you no matter what what! How cool is that. Even better, why not be that for others? A real Jesus thing! YOU be the bridge over troubled waters for others. How even more cool is that?
When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all (all)
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Be that kind of bridge building friend! YES!
Year 1981 (Live in Central Park)
One who forgives an affront fosters friendship, but one who dwells on disputes will alienate a friend.
--Proverbs 17:9 NRSV
