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

Oh what peace we often forfeit

Oh what needless pain we bear

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer

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

Take it to the Lord in prayer

Are we weak and heavy laden

Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Saviour, still our refuge

Take it to the Lord in prayer

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

Blessed Saviour, You have promised

You will all our burdens bear

May we ever, Lord, be bringing

All to You in earnest prayer

Soon in glory bright unclouded

There will be no need for prayer

Rapture, praise and endless worship

Will be our sweet portion there
