O what peace we oft - en for - feit, O what need - less pain we bear,
Can we find a friend so faith - ful who will all our sor - rows share?
Do your friends des - pise, for - sake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer!

All be - cause we do not car - ry ev - ery - thing to God in prayer.

In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a sol - ace there.

Rap-ture, praise and end - less wor - ship will be our sweet por - tion there.
