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 needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry,
Everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptation?
Is there trouble any where?
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 ev’ry weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

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.
