302 What a Friend We have in Jesus
1
何等 救主 ,
罪孽 ;
何等 权利 万事 ,
来到 耶稣 !
多少 平安 我们 坐失 ,
多少 痛苦 冤枉 ,
因为 万事 ,
来到 耶稣 .
2
我们 试探 引诱 ?
难过 关头 ?
决不 应当 因此 灰心 ,
!
何处 良友 ,
一切 ?
我们 弱点 知道 ,
放心 .
3
我们 是否 软弱 ,
千斤重担 肩头 ?
避难所 ,
耶稣 !
,
耶稣 !
怀 保护 ,
安慰 便 .

1 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!
2
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!
3
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 wilt find a solace there.
