what a friend we have in Jesus ...
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.
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.
