What a Friend We Have in Jesus 106
(ERIE. 8,7,8,7, D.)
Joseph Scriven, 1820-1886 Charles C. Converse, 1868

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear;
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer.
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what need less 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 care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, for sake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer:
In his arms he'll take and shield thee,

Thou wilt find a solace there. Amen.
