Happy Friday!

I am so happy today, for no reason, other than it's a great day.

On my way into work, I was stuck in bad traffic, my radio station (a non-christian one) sung the first two lines of one of my favorite hymns. For me it melts my heart, relaxs my body & mind and reminds me of what a loving God we have. So enjoy my little hymn for just a moment and enjoy your friday.

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 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.
