Jesus is the only friend
who really keeps your secrets.
He knows how much they mean to you,
He never will forget.
He’s the only one who knows the truth,
and why the truth was there.
He knows you only made a mistake,
and the memory is hard to bear.
He doesn’t try to show it off,
that He had gained your trust.
He knows the pain it caused your heart,
and remembers an oath is just.
For what you’ve done to gain the shame
of something you regret,
is simply an error of your life
to which your secret’s kept.
