What A Friend We Have In Jesus 


  9  9   -10   9   8   7  7 -6
What a friend we have in Je-sus, 

 6   7    8   7    9     8  -8
All our sins and griefs to bear! 

  9  9  -10 9   8    7  7  -6
What a priv-i-ledge to car-ry 

 6  7    8   -8  7  -7    7
Ev-'ry-thing to God in prayer! 

-8    7    -8   8 -9 -8   8    9
Oh, what peace we of-ten for-feit, 

-10  -10   9    8   -9   8  -8
Oh, what need-less pain we bear, 

 9   9  -10   9  8  7   7  -6
All be-cause we do not car-ry 

 6  7    8   -8  7  -7    7
Ev-'ry-thing to God in prayer!

verse 2
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 ev'ry weakness
Take it to the Lord in Prayer.

verse 3
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.
