A tribute to one of the most beloved hymns ever penned, "What A Friend" is a new collaboration between Elisha J. Mitchell and Derris Nelson of Lighteye Productions.

The song is based on "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" by Joseph Scriven. Scriven wanted the world to know that Jesus doesn't want us to be crushed by our burdens.
Additional lyrics are from "There's Not a Friend Like the Lowly Jesus" by Johnson Oatman, Jr.

Lyrics

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 pains 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 feel discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our trials share
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Jesus knows all about our struggles
And He will guide 'til the day is done
I tell you that there's not an hour
That He is not near us
No night so dark
That His love can't cheer us

O, What a Friend
He's a Friend
What a Friend we have
What a Friend
He's our Friend
What a Friend we have

He's approachable and available
He's so wonderful
He will counsel you
Comfort and console you

Where can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our trials share
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Take it to the Lord in prayer
