What A Friend by Matt Maher

This weeks Christian Music Monday is by Matt Maher and the song What A Friend. This has parts of that old time fashioned Hymn by Charles Crozat Converse (Poem by Jospeh M. Scriven, 1855), we often sing in church.

 

Lyrics

Everybody has trials and temptations
Everybody knows heart break, isolation
But we can lay our burdens down (our burdens down)
Lay our burdens down

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

Everybody has fears, everybody got worries
Everybody knows sorrow, devastation

But we can lay our burdens down (our burdens down)
Lay our burdens down

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home

No more betrayal, for He is faithful
He fills me up and my cup runneth over
No more betrayal, for He is faithful
How He has proven it over and over
No more betrayal, for He is faithful
He fills me up and my cup runneth over
No more betrayal, for He is faithful
How He has proven it over and over
Over and over

What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home
What a friend we have in Jesus
East to west my sins are gone, yeah
I see grace on every horizon
And forever and ever His heart is my home
Forever and ever His heart is my home
