Oh, what peace we often forfeit,

Oh, what needless pain we bear all because we do not carry

 G                      C        G      D               G
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,

 G                      C       G                      D
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care? 
 G                           C     G      D              G 
Precious Savior, still our refuge take it to the Lord in prayer.
D                          G
Do thy friends despise forsake thee?
 C      G                D        
Take it to the Lord in prayer. 
G                           C            D                       G
In His arms He'll take and shield thee, thou wilt find a solace there.

Lyrics


Verse 1
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,
Oh, what needless pain we bear all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.

Verse 2
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.

Verse 3
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.

耶稣是我亲爱朋友,担当我罪与忧愁
何等权利能将万事,带到主恩座前求
多少平安屡屡失去,多少痛苦白白受
皆因我们未将万事,带到主恩座前求

耶稣是我亲爱朋友,担当我罪与忧愁
何等权利能将万事,带到主恩座前求
多少平安屡屡失去,多少痛苦白白受
皆因我们未将万事,带到主恩座前求

是否烦恼压着心头,是否遇事连隐忧
我们切莫灰心失望,快到主恩座前求
何处得此忠心朋友,担当一切苦与忧
我们弱点主都知道,放心到主座前求
