What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Are you weak and heavy laden?
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Jesus is 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
