What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilage to carry
Ev'rything to God in prayer!

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Ev'rything 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 the friends despise, forsake thee
Take it to the Lord in prayer
In His arms He'll take and shield thee
And you will find a solace there.

And you will find a solace there...
