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.

So So Blessed with the lyrics of this Great Hymn. Came at the moment I needed it so badly. At his feet I have laid it all. I struggle by the Arms of flesh for too long. Thinking I could solve them by myself. But over to you Lord. I turn it over.


Safe in the arms of Jesus.


Thank you Jesus

I've been blessed with the spirit of Jesus Christ in the words of the song. So inspiring, encouraging, cheering to know that Jesus my Savior and Redeemer is ever hearing of our prayers to Him. Through Covid-19, and other unforeseen circumstances, He's faithful to carry us to brighter days ahead.
