History of the Hymn:
Joseph Scriven grew up in Ireland. He fell in love with a young woman, but lost her the day before their wedding after she was thrown from a horse and drown. He moved to Canada to overcome his sorrow. While tutoring children in the area, he met another woman. Once again, he lost her to pneumonia before they could marry. He wrote the lyrics for “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” to comfort his mother when she became terribly ill back home in Ireland. When a friend stumbled across the lyrics, Scriven had no intention of anyone other than her ever seeing them, yet it has now become a favorite and comforting hymn for so many.
