What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs, to bear. What a privilege it to carry, everything to God in prayer. O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pains we bear, all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer. Have we tryers and temptation, is there trouble anywhere, we should never be discouraged, take it to the lord in prayer, and so on the hymn goes.
