What A Friend We Have In Jesus
by Steven Curtis Chapman, Ricky Skaggs

Album: Deep Roots
by Steven Curtis Chapman, Ricky Skaggs


What a Friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer
O what peace we often forfeit
O what needless 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 Savior, still our refuge
Take it to the Lord in prayer
(Jesus, Jesus thou I trust)
(Thou I proved o'er and o'er)
Take it to the Lord in prayer
(Jesus, Jesus ,Precious Jesus)
(Oh what a friend we have)
(Oh Jesus, we trust in you)
