Merle Haggard — What A Friend We Have In Jesus lyrics

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and grieves to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer
Oh, what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer

Have we trials and temptation, is there trouble anywhere?
We should be never discouraged take it to the Lord in prayer
Oh, what peace we often forfeit of what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer
