Music Spotlight – Vanessa Lynn

This video has always been important to me because I remember singing it with my Grandma and also my Dad loves this song. The words have encouraged me over the years when I have felt lonely, discouraged, or afraid. Just to know that we can find peace and we can give our burdens to the Lord and bring him our anxieties and hopeless feelings through prayer. and “thou wilt find a solace there” ~ Vanessa Lynn

Here are the lyrics in their entirety:

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 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
