327 (8.7.8.7) Joseph Scriven

What a friend we have in Jesus,

All our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

Ev'rything to God in pray'r!

O, what peace we often forfeit!

O, what needless pain we bear!

All because we do not carry

Ev'rything to God in pray'r.

Have we trials and temptation?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged, —

Take it to the Lord in pray'r.

Can we find a friend so faithful,

Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our ev'ry weakness —

Take it to the Lord in pray'r.
