What A Friend

Submit

 

Capo on the 4th fret
 
D                                         G
What a friend we have in Jesus,
D                                         A
All ours sins and griefs to bear,
D                               G
What a privilege to carry,
D       A                        D
Everything to God in prayer!
A                                      D
O what peace we often forfeit,
G          D                            A
O what needless pain we bear,
D                                    G
All because we do not carry,
D     A                         D
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 Saviour 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.
