What a friend we have in Jesus 
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to 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
