What A Friend We Have In Jesus

WHAT A FRIEND - Charles C. Converse & Joseph Scriven

Lyrics

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and grieves to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer
Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what a 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 up 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 Jesus, 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 will find a solace there

Can we find up friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share
Jesus knows our every weakness, take it to the Lord in prayer
