Hymns for Seventh Sunday of Easter

770 What a Friend We have in Jesus

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!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit;
Oh, 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.

779 Come, My Soul, with Every Care

1
Come, my soul, with every care,
Jesus loves to answer prayer;
He Himself has bid thee pray,
Therefore will not turn away.
2
Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with Thee bring;
For His grace and power are such
None can ever ask too much.
3
With my burden I begin:
Lord, remove this load of sin;
Let Thy blood, for sinners split,
Set my conscience free from guilt.
4
Lord, Thy rest to me impart,
Take possession of my heart;
There Thy blood-bought right maintain
And without a rival reign.
5
While I am a pilgrim here,
Let Thy love my spirit cheer;
As my guide, my guard, my friend,
Lead me to my journey’s end.
6
Show me what is mine to do;
Every hour my strength renew.
Let me live a life of faith;
Let me die Thy people’s death.
