    I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY is the 4th CD by Greg Rice. It is a collection of favorite hymns that have blessed the church for many years.

    The CD is manufactured to resemble a vinyl record album and even begins with the sound of an old scratchy, vinyl record. The project is lovingly dedicated to Greg's grandfather, Dewey W. Crabb, who was an inspiration, not only to his family but to all who were blessed to have known him.

about

Words by Joseph Medlicott Scriven
Music by Charles C. Converse
Composed in 1855

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS is the 8th song on I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY. It is arranged in an easy, country feel, giving the calm assurance that no matter the trials of life, our Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ will give the strength to endure.

lyrics

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!

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 wilt find a solace there.

Take it to the Lord in prayer!
