What a Friend We Have in Jesus
by Alan Jackson



What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privlege to carry
Everything to the Lord 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 prayer?
Precious Savior, still our refuge;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
In His arms He'll take and sheild thee;
Thou will find a solace there.
