Oh, what a friend Christ is to us! He took our pain, and he commands us to take everything to God in prayer. Do you live weak and loaded with care and fear? To Jesus, eternal refuge, say everything in prayer. Thus begins the Christian hymn “What a friend.” A song that introduces us to Christ as our great faithful friend.
The hymn also tells us about how Christ died on the cross for us, suffering a great punishment while He was innocent, He bore our sins and the punishment that we should have suffered fell on Him. Oh, how glorious is our faithful friend Jesus, to Him be Glory and honor.
