What a Friend We Have in Jesus

Text: Joseph M. Scriven, 1820-1886
Music: Charles C. Converse, 1832-1918

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!
        O what peace we often forfeit,
        O what needless pain we bear,
        all because we do not carry
        everything to God in prayer.

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.

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.

I Love You, Lord

by Laurie Klein

I love You, Lord and I lift my voice
To worship You, O my soul rejoice
Take Joy, my King in what You hear
May it be a sweet sweet sound
In Your ear

My Heavenly Father Loves Me

from "The Children’s Songbook"

“Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.”

“He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, mind, my heart;
I thank Him rev’rently
For all his creations, of which I’m a part.
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me.”
