What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear.
What a privilege it is to carry
Everything to God in prayer.
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Oh, take it to the Lord in prayer.
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged.
So 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.
What a friend I found in Jesus
He’s a friend that cares for me
