In this song I have "let myself go" in a bluesy treatment of a beautiful traditional Christian song. I hope you get into it as much as I did!

Story behind the song
friend (frend) n. [ME.frend, freond,friend, lover, akin to G.freund, prp of Gmc. *frijon, to love (whence OE. freon): for IE. base see FREE] 1. a person whom one knows well and is fond of; intimate associate; close acquaintance 2. a person on the same side in a struggle; one who is not an enemy or foe; ally 3. a supporter or sympathizer(Webster's New World Dictionary-Second College Edition) Yes, Jesus is all these things, and much more!
What a Friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer. 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. 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 your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer! In His arms He’ll take and shield you; You will find a solace there. Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised Thou wilt all our burdens bear May we ever, Lord, be bringing All to Thee in earnest prayer. Soon in glory bright unclouded There will be no need for prayer Rapture, praise and endless worship Will be our sweet portion there.
