Song Lyrics

cold and in the snow
an orphan boy with no place to go
asked a man sir can you spare a dime
the man shook his head
said I'll tell you somethin' instead
see that little house down the street
knock on the door and say john 3:16 sent me

she looked at his tattered coat
his worn out shoes and little red nose
she said come on in there's warm food on the stove
he ate and then she said
a warm bath for you and off to bed
that's when she saw a tear run down his cheek

he said ma'am I don't know john 3:16
I don't know why but he has sure been good to me today
he made this poor bad glad
and I'm thankful for the food the fire and a good warm bed
when you see him will you tell him for me
tell him I'm not cold lonely or sad
say john 3:16 has been the best friend I ever had

years came & went and often she would think of him
and remember when he knelt down & prayed
revival came to town they said the preacher was renowned
so she went to the church down the street
when he stood to preach tears ran down her cheeks
he said open up your bibles to john 3:16
he said he's made this lost boy saved
and I'm thankful for his sacrifice and what he did that day
he found me when I was just a lad
I'm not orphaned or alone and now I have a dad
and john 3:16 is still the best friend I've ever had

for God so loved the world he's still the best friend I've ever had
