What A Friend We Have In Jesus

What A Friend We Have In Jesus is an old Christian Hymn. The song started out as a poem written by Joseph M. Scriven in 1855 sent to his Irish mother who missed her son living in Canada.

In 1868 Charles Crozat Converse and William Elden Bolcom composed the tune.

Camilla, my wife has been playing this on the keyboard for a while and I liked the tune so much I thought it would be a good one for the Folk Den.

I’ve made a video of me playing it on a Martin D-12-45 given to me by my friend Bill Lee.

Merry Christmas 2020!!!

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 thy friends despise, forsake thee?
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt find a solace there.

Farther Along

This is a traditional gospel song. We sang this in the Byrds and Clarence White did such a great vocal.
We sang this at Clarence’s wake.

This is the 300th post in the Folk Den.

Lyrics:
CH: [G] Farther along we’ll [C] know more about it.
[G] Farther along we’ll [A] understand [D] why;
[G] Cheer up my brother [C] live in the [G] sunshine
We’ll understand it [D] all by and [G] by.

When we see Jesus coming in glory;
When He comes from His home in the sky;
Then we shall meet Him in that bright mansion.
We’ll understand it all by and by.

You Can Tell The World

A great old Spiritual I first heard from Bob Gibson and Bob Camp. It’s been recorded by many folk groups.

[G]You Can Tell The World about this
[C]You Can Tell The nations about [G]that
Tell em what the [C] Master has [G] done
Tell em that the [C] victory’s been [G]won
Tell em that the [C] Gospel’s has [G] come
He brought joy, [D] joy, [G] joy into my heart

[D] My Lord spoke and He spoke to me
[C] Yes He [G] did [C] Yes He [G]did
[D] Spoke about a man from Galilee
[C] Yes He [G] did [C] Yes He [G]did
My Lord [Em] spoke and he spoke so well
Spoke about a fire that burns in Hell
[C] Yes He [G] did [C] Yes He [G]did
He brought joy, [D] joy, [G] joy into my heart

I don’t know but I’ve been told
Streets in Heaven are paved with gold
Jordan River is deep and wide
Got my home on the other side

While Shepherds Watched

“While Shepherds Watched” was composed in 1703 by Nahum Tate and Nicholas Brady. The melody was taken from “Siroe,” an opera by George Frederick Handel.
This was the first paraphrased psalm allowed to be sung in the Anglican Church.
An amusing children’s parody was “While Shepherds wash their socks by night!”
Lyrics:
1. [E] While shepherds watched their [A] flocks by night,
[C#m] All seated on the [B7]ground,
[A] The angel of the [C#m] Lord came down,
[A] And [B7] glory shone [E] around.
“Fear not,” he said, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds;
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind. wifewebcam sex

2. “To you, in David’s town, this day,
Is born of David’s line
A Savior, who is Christ the Lord;
And this shall be the sign:
The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swaddling-clothes
And in a manger laid.”

3. Thus spake the seraph,–and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels, praising God, Jesus
That was their joyful song
“All glory be to God on high,
And to the earth be peace;
Good will henceforth from Heaven to men
Begin and never cease.”

Will The Circle Be Unbroken

This is a hymn written in 1907 by Ada R. Habershon with music by Charles H. Gabriel. There is a later version written by the Carter family used as a funeral hymn.

I remember singing that version at the wedding ceremony of Rita Coolidge and Kris Kristofferson in Malibu – 1973

Lyrics:
[G] There are loved ones in the glory
[C] Whose dear forms you often [G] miss
When you close your earthly [Em]story
[G] Will you join them in [D] their [G] bliss?

CHORUS: [G] Will the circle be unbroken
[C] By and by, [G] by and by
Is a better home [Em] a-waiting
[G] Om the sky Lord [D] in the [G] sky?

In the Joyous days of childhood
Oft they told of wondrous love
Pointed to the dying Saviour
Now they dwell with Him above
CHORUS:
You can picture happy gatherings
Round the fireside long ago
And you think of tearful partings
When they left you here below
CHORUS:
One by one their seats were emptied
One by one they went away
Now the family is parted
Will it be complete one day?
CHORUS:

KumBaYa

KumBaYa is a spiritual that originated in Angola. It means Come By Hear Lord.
Lyrics:
[G] Kum Ba Ya my Lord [C] Kum Ba [G]Ya
[G] Kum Ba Ya my Lord [Am] Kum Ba [D]Ya
[G] Kum Ba Ya my Lord [C] Kum Ba [G]Ya
[C] Oh [G] Lord [D] Kum Ba [G] Ya

Someone’s singing Lord Kum Ba Ya X3
Oh Lord Kum Ba Ya

Someone’s dancing Lord Kum Ba Ya X3
Oh Lord Kum Ba Ya

Someone’s praying Lord Kum Ba Ya X3
Oh Lord Kum Ba Ya

Amazing Grace

John Newton, a former slave trader wrote “Amazing Grace” following Christian conversion after a near death experience
during a sea voyage.

Happy New Year 2019!!!

Lyrics:
Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T’was blind but now I see

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come.
T’was grace that brought us safe thus far
And grace will lead us home,
And grace will lead us home

Amazing grace, Howe Sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
T’was blind but now I see

What Child Is This?

This was originally posted here in the Folk Den on December 1st, 1996. I’m on the road right now with Chris Hillman, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” album. I hope you enjoy this Christmas carol from twenty two years ago.

(Lyrics 18?? by William Chatterton Dix, to the melody of 'Greensleeves')

Lyrics:
Em D

What child is this, who, laid to rest,

C B7

On Mary's lap is sleeping?

Em D

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet

C B7 Em

While shepherds watch are keeping.

G D

cho: This, this is Christ the King,

C Bm

Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:

G D

Haste, haste, to bring him laud

C B7 Em

The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear; for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh
Come, peasant, King to own Him;
The King of Kings salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
