Jesus Is My Friend Lyrics

Recitation:

The subject of this lecture: "Jesus Is My Friend"

Jesus is my backer
Stands by me day by day
And when I need His blessings
All I've got to do is to pray

When I was laying at Hell's dark door
There full of sin
He opened His door of mercy
And there He taken me in

And ever since I've been in Jesus
And shook a-loose from sin
The world can be my enemy
But Jesus is my Friend

He left the doors of Heaven
On the count of love
He did His work as a Savior
And went back home above

What a Friend we have in Jesus
You know that's the [verest] thing
Now [while] I've got my instrument
That's the song that I believe I'll sing

sung:

What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and grief
to bear.
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
All our sins have been fulfilled, O what grevious pain
we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in
prayer.

--------------

Phillips sang what would be the first verse of "What A
Friend We Have
in Jesus", except for the third line. The entire hymn
follows:

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 your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the
Lord in prayer!
In His arms He?ll take and shield you; you will find a
solace there.

Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our
burdens bear
May we ever, Lord, be bringing all to Thee in earnest
prayer.
Soon in glory bright unclouded there will be no need
for prayer
Rapture, praise and endless worship will be our sweet
portion there.
