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 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.

Of a truth what a friend we have in Jesus. Are we weak and heavy-laden,

Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge—

Jesus in all ramifications still our refuge... this song inspires me right this minute.

So comforting. It makes me remembered my late father when he used to sing every morning. Jesus Christ is the only trusted and reliable friend one can depend on. As we take everything to prayer may the Lord see us through

Jesus is the best friend and only answer to the trouble going on all over the world, political leaders are clueless, scientist and philosophy and technology rendered ineffective to solve the spread of terror and affliction through the C. V.

The answer to it all is Jesus, and as we pray all over the world bearing this song in mind, divine intervention is release and the wisdom and knowledge of God is come upon all medical scientist, virologist, doctors and medical personal to fight, win and suffer solution leading to vaccines n medication that will put an end to it all

We should bear in mind, how will it be when rapture take place? A virus brought the world economy n institutions and politics to a, stand still , what or how do you think it will be when the Church of God ( the body of Christ- Christains, the only restrain to the reign of evil in the world) is taken away through rapture?

This is a warning of what is to come. Repent and make Jesus your friend and savior before it too late, today, tomorrow and the future is only guarantee in Jesus Christ.

What a friend, father, helper and companion I have in Jesus. He is everything to me. He is too faithful to fail. Other friends can disappoint you but my Jesus never did for once. The song takes me direct to the heavenlies, for an encounter each time I listened to it.

I remember my dad singing this song. He's with Jesus now. He left a wonderful legacy of "Trusting God" and not worrying. I intend to do the same in the midst of this Caronavirus outbreak. Jesus my rock, my redeemer and Friend.
