Beautiful Cover Of ‘What A Friend We Have In Jesus’ Assures Us That He Bears All Our Burdens

Maryanne J George does an inspiring cover of the Christian hymn ‘What A Friend We Have In Jesus.’

She writes on her official YouTube channel that she did it on a whim at her church s’mores & bonfire night.

Some of the best-loved hymns were written in great sadness, ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’ was written in such times.

Joseph Scriven wrote this hymn about the friendship of Jesus, how He comforts us and bears all our burdens. Scriven a native of Dublin, was born in 1820.

What a friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!

As a young man, he was engaged to be married to his longtime love, the wedding date had been fixed but just before the wedding day, his to-be-bride was found accidentally drowned, which threw him into the deepest sorrow.

This heartbreaking situation brought a dependence upon Christ and of the great truth he expressed in his song.

O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
all because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.

Today as we hear Maryanne J George singing a beautiful anointed cover of this song we are comforted to know that Jesus bears all our burdens and is a true friend we can depend on forever. Amen!
