WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS

何等恩友慈仁救主

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 Saviour, still our refuge--
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms He'll take and shield you;
You will find a solace there.

何等恩友慈仁救主,
负我罪愆担我忧;
何等权利能将万事,
来到耶稣座前求!
多少平安我们坐失,
多少痛苦冤枉受,
都是因为未将万事,
来到耶稣座前求。

我们有无试探引诱?
有无难过苦关头?
决不应当因此灰心;
仍当到主座前求!
何处能寻这般良友,
同尝一切苦与愁?
我们弱点主都知道,
放心到主座前求!

我们是否软弱多愁,
千斤重担压肩头?
主仍做我避难处所,
奔向耶稣座前求!
你若正逢友叛亲离,
快向耶稣座前求!
到祂怀中祂必保护,
有祂安慰便无忧。
