What A Friend We Have In Jesus

[UMH #526] by Charles Crozat Converse and Joseph Medlicott Scriven

Verse Order: V1, V2, V3

Verse 1
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

Verse 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

Verse 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
