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?
Jesus, Savior, is our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Jesus knows our every weakness, take it to the Lord in prayer
Blessed Savior, You have promised, all our burdens You will bear
May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to you in earnest prayer
Soon, in glory bright unclouded, face to face will be our prayer
Joyful praise and endless worship will be our sweet portion there
