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
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
