神在新约中有很多应许,就像「耶稣恩友」歌词中所说的那些。比如说,耶稣在马太福音说:
「凡劳苦担重担的人可以到我这里来,我就使你们安息。我心里柔和谦卑,你们当负我的轭,学我的样式;这样,你们心里就必得享安息。」 - 《马太十一28-29》

耶稣恩友 歌词
耶稣是我亲爱朋友  担当我罪与忧愁;
何等权利能将万事,带到主恩座前求!
多少平安屡屡失去,多少痛苦白白受,
皆因为未将各样事,带到主恩座前求。

或遇试探或遇引诱  或有烦恼压心头
切莫灰心切莫丧胆  来到主恩座前求!
何处得此忠心朋友,分担一切苦与忧?
耶稣深知我软弱    来到主恩座前求。

是否软弱劳苦多愁,挂虑重担压肩头?
主乃是作避难所,  来到主恩座前求!
亲或离我友或弃我  来到主恩座前求!
在主怀中必蒙护佑  与主同在永无忧。

施恩救主已应允    分担我一切苦与忧
愿我们虔诚来祈祷  一切重担交主手
主的荣光一临到    忧伤的祈祷不再有
喜乐,颂扬无尽的赞美  将是我甜蜜的享受

这首『耶稣恩友』歌,相信是每一位基督徒都会唱,而且是深受喜爱的一首诗歌,有许多人都被这首诗歌所吸引及感动,也带给许多基督徒灵命的鼓舞及安慰。其实这首歌创作的背景原来还有一段相当感人的故事。 这首诗歌的作者,名叫约瑟史克来芬(Joseph Scriven),他于1820年生于英国爱尔兰,在他大学毕业之后,为了能帮助别人而毫不犹豫的选择了艰难的工作,总是为别人着想,而很少考虑到自己的利益,后来甚至远离家乡搬到加拿大,经常的帮助一些有需要的人。当他快要结婚的时候,忽然传来他的未婚妻在所搭的船,不幸落水被淹死了,当他得知这个厄运,如晴天霹雳,真是痛不欲生,然而他却勇敢的振作起来了,并且在他最痛苦的心情,最悲伤的感受下,写出了这首感人的歌,不但安慰了自己,最重要的,乃是为了要安慰他在爱尔兰的母亲。

后来这首歌在无意间被他的朋友所发现,(因为从没有人知道他会写诗),问他到底如何会写出那么美的诗来,他回答说:『那原来是为了要安慰母亲所写的几行诗,因她心中有很大痛苦,此诗无心让别人看到』。后来又有人问他:是否是这首诗的真正作者?他回答说:『这诗是因为主在我里面,我们二人合作而成的。(他后来直到死都没有再结婚)

这首歌的流行及大受欢迎之原因,其实也要归功于作曲者C. C. Converse的谱曲,旋律的优美,配合了诗中所表达的情感,难怪发表会造成那么多人的喜爱,并且也安慰了不少的愁心苦意。


见证:主耶稣,我恩友
我认识Nadine以后,不时也到那里去听牧师讲道。但是在精神上对我并没有甚么帮助。后来才明白,是因为我当时没有向 神祈求的原故。1948年除夕晚上,我打工回到住的地方,心里很烦,不知不觉地就跑到那间教堂去,正好他们在聚会,牧师讲到耶稣如何是我们的恩友,说只要我们信赖他,他就会分担我们的忧愁、烦恼,和苦闷。只要我们信赖他,他就会给我们指引,让我们得到平安、喜乐和力量。信息很简单,但是,不知道为甚么对我却有很大的安慰和启示。牧师讲完了信息以后,唱的圣诗是「What A Friend We Have in Jesus」(耶稣恩友)。第一段是:...

What a friend we have in Jesus

D                        G
What a friend we have in Jesus,
D                           A
All ours sins and griefs to bear,
D                   G
What a privilege to carry
A                    D
Everything to God in prayer!
A                     D
O what peace we often forfeit,
G      D                A
O what needless pain we bear,
D                     G
All because we do not carry
A                    D
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 Saviour 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.

Who wrote this hymn?
Joseph Scriven, 1819–1886

Joseph Scriven had wealth, education, a devoted family, and a pleasant life in his native Ireland. Then unexpected tragedy entered. On the night before Scriven’s scheduled wedding, his fiancée drowned. In his deep sorrow, Joseph realized that he could find the solace and support he needed only in his dearest friend, Jesus.

Soon after this tragedy, Scriven dramatically changed his lifestyle. He left Ireland for Port Hope, Canada, determined to devote all of his extra time in being a friend and helper to others. He often gave away his clothing and possessions to those in need, and he worked—without pay—for anyone who needed him. Scriven became known as “the Good Samaritan of Port Hope.” When Scriven’s mother became ill in Ireland, he wrote a comforting letter to her, enclosing the words of his newly written poem with the prayer that these brief lines would remind her of a never-failing heavenly Friend. Sometime later, when Joseph Scriven himself was ill, a friend who came to call on him happened to see a copy of these words scribbled on scratch paper near his bed. The friend read the lines with interest and asked, “Who wrote those beautiful words?”

“The Lord and I did it between us,” was Scriven’s reply.
