I found myself singing this song all day long yesterday!
I am moved with tears with the words to this beautiful song....
There is no other friend like Jesus, and when we consider all that He does for us, it makes our relationship to Him more special than any that we can ever have with our fellow man. That is why Joseph Scriven wrote the lyrics to “What A Friend We Have In Jesus.”
Scriven was born in 1820 in Dublin, and moved to Canada at the age of twenty-five.
On the eve of his wedding, Scriven’s fiancee drowned.
Having no where else to go, and his best friend gone, he found comfort in Jesus Christ. With a renewed understanding of the Lord, he moved to Port Hope, Canada and spent the rest of his life living on humble means and doing good deeds for everybody around him. Jesus Christ was the only friend he ever needed.
I am sure that those around him often said the words....What a Friend!
Just this past week, our community has seen the passing of three outstanding citizens. Wonderful people that loved the Lord....We mourn the loss of these friends and loved ones that God has placed in our lives, but just like Mr. Scriven....we know that we have a FRIEND IN JESUS....A friend that loves us and longs to comfort our hearts.......Praise God!
"What a Friend we have in Jesus"
Can we find a friend so faithful?
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus know our every weakness....
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
Learn the language of love....Be a friend!
