What a Friend we have in You, Jesus,

All our sufferings, heartaches, and sin-sickness You bear.

What a privilege to carry all our burdens to You in prayer,

For we are weak, but You are strong.

We are discouraged, but You are our hope.

We are selfish, but You are selfless.

We are takers, but You are the Giver.

We know little, but You know everything.

We discern poorly, but You discern perfectly.

We are foolish, but You are the Wisdom we need.

We have minds ensnared by lies, but You are the truth that sets us free.

We struggle with resentments, but You forgive freely.

We are fearful, but You are the love that casts out our fear.

We are sick at heart, but You are our cure.

We are terminal in sin, but You are our remedy.

We have been Your enemies, but we surrender all to You, our Friend.


So now, when we are tired, You give us strength.

When we stumble and fall, You pick us up.

When we have questions, You provide answers.

When we have doubts, You give us evidence.

When we are wounded, You heal our hearts.

When we are lonely, You comfort us.

When we are confused, You bring us understanding.

When we are lost, You lead us home.

When others betray us, You stand by us.

When temptation comes, You always make a way of escape.

When we are grieving, You put Your arms of love around us.

When we take our eyes off You, You still watch over us.

When we remember You, You run to us.

When we walk with You, You transform us.

What a Friend we have in You, Jesus,

For we were once Your enemies,

But now we are finally Your friends!


Thank You, Jesus!
