Hymn No. 124
What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
He gives privilege to carry
Ev'rything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit -
And what needless fears we bear -
When we do not simply carry
All our needs to Him in prayer!
Have we great and sore temptations,
Mighty floods of trials to bear?
We should never be discourag'd,
For the Lord can hear our prayer.
There's no other friend so faithful,
Who doth ev'ry sorrow share,
There's but One who knows our weakness -
Then to that One take your care.
