my lyricsbox
What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilage to carry
Ev'rything to God in prayer!

Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Ev'rything 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.

--- Instrumental ---

Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge;
Take it to the Lord in prayer:

Do the friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He'll take and shield thee;
And you will find a solace there.

And you will find a solace there...
This song is from the album "The Gospel Collection" and "The Gospel Set [BMG Special Products]".
