What a Friend

What a Friend We Have in Jesus

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

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.

If you have no friends or they have forsaken you, Jesus is your friend.  He will care for you and sustain you.  You never have to walk alone. 

Never alone,

I wrote a post this morning too, but it won't be available until Friday... it was for MOHL. :)

OH! Yum! The background is soooooooooooooo cute. :D In a you-kind-of-way. Not in a me-kind-of-way. It's totally you, dahling!

...Now, for a totally retro-y adorable header and button and sidebar tags to match!
