My Friend Jesus

Don’t face trouble or sorrow alone.

Take it to the Lord in prayer;
in his arms he’ll take and shield you,
you will find a solace there.*

Jesus has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows (Isaiah 53:4).
The Lord is my steadfast love . . . my shield (Psalm 144:2).

*adapted from What a Friend We Have in Jesus by Joseph Scriven.
