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
everything to God in prayer.

2. 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.

3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
burdened with a load of care?
Jesus is our mighty Saviour,
he will listen to our prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
take it to the Lord in prayer;
in his arms he’ll take and shield you,
find your strength and comfort there.
