What A Friend We Have In Jesus Lyrics - Song by Charles Converse and Joseph Scriven

Widely used during the Billy Graham Crusade.

  • Verse 1
    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.
  • 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 every 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 your friends despise, forsake you?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.

The Lord Jesus Christ is a true friend and no love is greater than the Love of God.

Is this A Popular Rendering of The Tune? The Lyrics of What A Friend We Have in Jesus by Alan Jackson

Prayer: Thank you Father for Who You are. Thank you, Lord Jesus that You are The Way, and The Truth and The Life and that no one comes to the Father except they come through You.

I come to You today asking for your help, and Your support as I seek to live for You in this evil world. Help me to redeem the time for the days are evil; living well in honor of You and serving You faithfully, by the grace that You give, so that someone can be saved.

I'm praying Lord for my finances, personal life, relationships and career. Lord, you know all that I have need of, so I rest in knowing that You have already handled it, waiting for me to come to You to receive instructions. Thank you for being my Friend and Father, God, and that your grace is enough in Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen!

After this you can listen to gospel piano music.
