Text: Joseph Scriven, 1855
Music: Scott Lindsay, 2004


What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs He bears!
What a privilege to carry
Everything, 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!

O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything, everything to God in prayer.
