About Alabama

Alabama was the group that made country bands popular again. Emerging in the late ’70s, the band had roots in both country and rock. The band formed in Fort Payne, Alabama, in 1969. The band was founded by Randy Owen (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and his cousin Teddy Gentry (bass, backing vocals). They were soon joined by another cousin, Jeff Cook (lead guitar, fiddle, and keyboards). Alabama’s biggest success came in the 1980s, where the band had over 27 number one hits, seven multi-platinum albums and received numerous awards. The band has over 41 number one country records on the Billboard charts to their credit and have sold over 75¬†million records, making them the most successful band in country music history. Alabama was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in 2019 and was awarded with the first ever Life Time Achievement Award from this institution.

Alabama – What A Friend We Have In Jesus ( Gaither Music TV Youtube)

What a Friend We Have in Jesus


What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
And oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
To 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?
Or who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Are we weak and heavy laden?
Encumbered with a load I’ve carried
Precious Savior still I refuge, hmm
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer
‘Cause in His arms
He’ll take and shield you
Thou will find no solace there

Oh, take it to the Lord in prayer
Take it to the Lord in prayer
