Spirit of Friendship
Posted On: 2019-12-28
NARRATOR: A friend is a jewel that shines brightest in the darkness.
SPIRIT OF FRIENDSHIP: (lights candle)
Give me my eyes the will to see,
My friend for what she is to me.
It's not her creed or shade of skin
That makes her heart to mine akin.
NARRATOR: We are all strangers to each other until one of us puts out her hand and makes a friend.
NARRATOR: A true friend has qualities that she readily shares with another person to allow the friendship to grow.
Come forth understanding and obtain your light and let it shine to the outermost parts of the earth.
With girls of every race upon the earth.
Come forth love and obtain your light and let it shine in the hearts of all girls.
Beyond false pride which tears our world apart,
Deep rooted, basic in every human heart.
Come forth tolerance and obtain your light and let it shine through the actions of everyone.
Transcends the bounds of color, creed or land.
Come forth truth and obtain your light and never let it be extinguished.
Teach us to walk in peace as sisters should -
That truth and wisdom shall expand the soul
Toward a universal sisterhood.
Shall nations ‘round the world be saved
