Will You Be A Jonathan?

Will You Be A Jonathan?

When I feel like David and I am weighed down,
When I need encouragement from you,
When I don’t feel so brave and my heart is frail,
Will you be a Jonathan too?

When I lose the vision and my eyes are dim,
When I can’t see God’s blessed view,
When I need reminders of God’s perfect love,
Will you be a Jonathan too?

Will you make a covenant to stand by me,
In tough times will you help me through,
When I stumble and falter in my walk with God,
Will you be a Jonathan too?

Will you think of me before yourself,
Demonstrating what a servant should do,
Will you show me how to live before the Lord,
Will you be a Jonathan too?

Will you love me as you love yourself,
Will you delight yourself in me too,
Will you speak well of me to my enemies,
Will you be a Jonathan too?

Will you risk your life for me to show your love,
Will you do your best to be true,
Will you encourage me in God, and strengthen my heart,
Will you be a Jonathan too?

Thank you for your friendship, and for all your love,
I feel like I’ve been renewed;
Now that my faith is strengthened and my heart has healed,
I can feel the Lord’s love flowing through.

My life is right with God,
I can see His glory now,
And I am no longer blue;
But when I see your pain,
That you are struggling again,
I know I can be a Jonathan for you.

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly:
and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24

And Jonathan Saul’s son arose,
and went to David into the wood,
and strengthened his hand in God.
1 Samuel 23:16
