Weekend Inspiration ‘Hymns Of Our Forefathers’

friends

We call Him Our Lord and Our Friend, but that is something that has been known for a long time. There is a Hymn people down through the ages have been singing with similar words. That Hymn ‘What A Friend We Have in Jesus’, read along or sing along, with great joy for it really is true. God wants to be our God, but He also wants to be our Friend, if we ask Him to.

V1: 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,

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer.

V2: Have we trails and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged:

Take it to The Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful,

Who will all our sorrows share/

Jesus knows our every weakness—

Take it to The Lord in prayer!

V3: 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.

What wonderful words, to remind us no matter what we go through, take it to Our Lord, in prayer.
