My Most Understanding Friend 
Music and lyrics by Xiao Min

Lord, You are my most understanding friend,
Lord, You are my dearest companion.
You are always on my mind, every day,
I long to see Your face.

At every stage of my life,
During each little pause in my life,
Your hand is always holding me,
Keeping me by Your side,

Telling me the path which I should take,
That I might not slide towards death!
How long, how wide, how deep and high is Your love!
From the depths of my heart, I am in awe!

With You, I need nothing else!
My heart is joined to Yours!
I have vowed to follow You and never change my mind!
