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.

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.
