Ronnie Milsap – What A Friend We Have In Jesus lyrics

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit?
Oh, 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

Oh, 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
Oh, take it to the Lord in prayer

    I've found this song to mean is trust no man or woman totally. Man the bible says is imperfect but jesus is perfect he won't turn your words around he wont kick you when your down. Wow that would make a good line in a song huh. Marshall rodeheaver. Leesburg christian center, in sunny florida is where god provides manna for my soul and has blessed me with an awesome church family and pastor.
