What A Friend We Have In Jesus

On the night before Joseph Scriven’s wedding in 1843, he received the worst kind of news. His fiance had drowned. In 1855, he received news from Ireland of his mother being terribly ill. He sat down to write a note of comfort to her and penned these words,

 

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer
Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, 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
