what a friend we have in jesus

D                        G

What a friend we have in Jesus,

D                           A

All ours sins and griefs to bear,

D                   G

What a privilege to carry

D           A                    D

Everything to God in prayer!

A                     D

O what peace we often forfeit,

G          D                A

O what needless pain we bear,

D                     G

All because we do not carry

D         A                    D

Everything to God in prayer!

 

 

 

D                        G

Have we trials and temptations?

D                           A

Is there trouble anywhere?

D                        G

We should never be discouraged;

D           A                    D

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

A                     D

Can we find a friend so faithful

G          D                A

Who will all our sorrows share?

D                     G

Jesus knows our every weakness;

D           A                    D

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

 

 

D                        G

Are we weak and heavy laden,

D                           A

Cumbered with a load of care?

D                        G

Precious Saviour still our refuge;

D           A                    D

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

A                     D

Do thy friends despise forsake thee?

G          D                A

Take it to the Lord in prayer!

D                     G

In His arms He·ll take and shield thee;

D           A                    D

Thou wilt find a solace there.

Written by Joseph Medlicott Scriven, 1855
