​What A Friend We Have In Jesus (You Are My Friend)

This song is by Shirley Caesar.

What a friend we have, we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
Oh, what a privilege it is to carry, carry
Everything to God in prayer

You are my friend, my friend, I never knew till then
A friend, my friend, my friend, hold my hand, my hand
Might I say a word but I see your tears when I show my pain
The load you helped me to carry on, yes it does

Sometimes I feel I'm weak, feel like all my hope is gone
My future looks bright to me, yes it does

You are my friend
I never knew, I didn't realize until then
You are my friend
I tried to find you every where I looked
But one day, I heard the Word of God
And I saw my friend

I go on
I go 'round, I go 'round, whoa
I've been looking around
And You were here all the time

I go 'round, I go round
I go on, whoa
I've been looking
And You were here all the time

I go on
I go 'round, go on, whoa
I've been looking around
And you were here all the time

What a friend we have in Lord
All my sins and grief's to bear
What a privileged to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Been around, been looking around
Been looking around
I've been looking around
And you were here all the time
