E                                           A
What a friend we have in Jesus,
E                                            B
All ours sins and griefs to bear.
E                                 A
What a privilege to carry
E         B                        E
Everything to God in prayer.
B                                          E
O what peace we often forfeit,
A            E                             B
O what needless pain we bear,
E                                       A
All because we do not carry
E         B                        E
Everything to God in prayer.

 


E                                         A
Have we trials and temptations,
E                                 B
Is there trouble anywhere.
E                                        A
We should never be discouraged,
E          B                        E
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
B                                          E
Can we find a friend so faithful,
A              E                          B
Who will all our sorrows share.
E                                        A
Jesus knows our every weakness,
E          B                       E
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

 

 

E                                         A
Are we weak and heavy laden,
E                                           B
Cumbered with a load of care.
E                                          A
Precious Savior still our refuge,
E          B                       E
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
B                                          E
Do thy friends despise forsake thee,
A          E                       B
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
E                                            A 
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
E              B                       E
Thou will find a solace there.
