What a Friend we have in Jesus

1
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!
2
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.
3
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 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!

I was pain in my heart, I was broken. I was dead, I was in a dark, I was lost because of my sin. But what a friend we have in Jesus. All our sins and griefs to bear and take away. What a beautiful word from God. I love this hymn.

This song inspires me a lot, lots of time I've wondered away thinking about how am gonna deal with all my problems, without realizing that a true friend is always there to listen, to heal, to comfort, to forgive and is faithful, loving us unconditionally.

During devotion this morning, this song just pop out of my head. Looking at the words now it just what I need at this moment. These words appear so alive now than ever. Thank Jesus for the friends You are. This makes me feel also sad for those who don't know Him. The world can be a cruel place but Jesus is the shield we all need to carry on. Amen.

All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer. Yes, this is very difficult for us humans and I really don't know why.

But truly that's the end of all our problems and sorrows because there is no one faithful like Him.

Thank You Lord.
