What A Friend We Have In Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer!
Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Are we weak and heavy laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge-
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He'll take and shield you;
you wilt find a solace there.
