What A Friend We Have In Jesus

Lyrics ~ Joseph Scriven, 1819 -1886

Music ~ Charles C. Converse, 1832-1918



Stanza 1:

What a friend we have in Jesus,

All our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

Ev'rything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,

O what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry

Ev'rything to God in prayer.



Stanza 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 ev'ry weakness;

Take it to the Lord in prayer.



Stanza 3:

Are we weak and heavy laden,

Cumbered with a load of care?

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 shield thee;

Thou wilt find a solace there.
