The story behind the hymn............

I posted Rhonda Vincent's rendition of the hymn "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" in my 'Sunday Morning Mountain  Gospel Music' series, this morning

Having  learned that hymn about 60 years ago while attending 'Vacation Bible School' at a neighborhood Baptist Church, it's still one of my favorites. I was surprised that Church is still active and found a current photo of it. I have fond memories of going to 'Vacation Bible School' there. 

 "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" written by the Irishman Joseph M. Scriven

This hymn has a very interesting story behind it...........   

"What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer"
