What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to share
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 up friend so faithful who will all our sorrow share)
In his arms he'll take and shield it you will find us all us there
Carry everything to God in prayer
