Oh Sweet Companion
Words & Music by Terry Scott Taylor
2002 Zoom Daddy Music (BMI)
We're on the backside of this hilltop
and the years have taken tolls
on our skin and on our bodies
on our hearts and on our souls
but still you're just as beautiful
as on that first night long ago
when with his trembling hand
a boy took your hand
and knew he'd never let it go

I love you more today
than I even did back then
Sweet Companion (Oh, Sweet Companion)
My love, my life, my friend
Sweet Companion
Oh, Sweet Companion

We've both walked through fields of sorrow
and in them sown the seeds of faith
I've carved the lines of tears and laughter
on the glory of your face
There were the times I took the good things
and I nearly laid them waste
but never did I see you
lose your elegance and grace

I gave my lovely bride a promise
and I'd do the same again
Sweet Companion (Oh, Sweet Companion)
My love, my life, my friend
Sweet Companion
Oh, Sweet Companion

And I may not have tomorrow
to say these things to you,
so I've put them in a little song
'cos that's the kind of thing I do
And if Jesus were to take me
before these lines are through
there is enough here I have written
so you'll know each word is true

We both wrote our book together
and it's a story without end
Sweet Companion (Oh, Sweet Companion)
My love, my life, my friend
Sweet Companion
Oh, Sweet Companion
Sweet Companion
Oh, Sweet Companion
