 407   WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS,

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 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.

Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bear -May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to Thee in earnest prayer. -Soon in glory bright unclouded there will be no need for prayer  -Rapture, praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there.
