Lyrics

Verse 1

Grandma used to pray out loud
By her bed every night
To me it sounded like mumbling
Like she was out of her mind
She said
Boy this kind of praying
Is what saved my life
You outta try it some time
Now I know she was right

Chorus 1

She was talking to Jesus
She was talking to Jesus
She’d been talking to Jesus
For all of her life

Verse 2

Mama use to drag me to church
Sunday mornings
And Wednesday nights
Khaki pants and a polo shirt
Boy I put up a fight
She said
Son one day you’ll thank me
For having God in your life
And yeah I know she was right
Yeah my mama was right

Chorus 2

'Cause now I’m talking to Jesus
She got me talking to Jesus
She got me talking to Jesus
Yeah my mama was right
'Cause now I’m talking to Jesus
Yeah I love talking to Jesus
And I'll be talking to Jesus
For the rest of my life

Post Chorus

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Ohhh

Verse 3

I've got three of my own now
Trying to raise them up right
My oldest is fifteen and I remember
What that was like
Trying to deal with the drama
Trying to figure out the questions in life
I’ve been looking for a way to show him
How to make it alright

Verse 4

Then he walked in my room
While I was saying my prayers
The other night
He said I’ll come back later
I can tell you got a lot on your mind
I said it’s not an interruption
You couldn’t have picked a better time
'Cause I was just talking to Jesus
Come over and give it a try

Chorus 3

We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
Ohhhh
And now he’s talking to Jesus
Thank God he’s talking to Jesus
I hope he’s talking to Jesus
For the rest of his life

Post Chorus

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Ohhh

Verse 5

There’s no wrong way to do it
There’s no bad time to start
It don't have to sound pretty
Just tell him what’s on your heart
'Cause it’s not a religion
It’s more like a friendship
Just talk to your Father
Like you are His kid

Chorus 4

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
You can talk to Jesus
Oh whenever you like
Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
Just keep talking to Jesus
For the rest of your life

Post Chorus

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Ohhh

Refrain

Ohhhh ohhhh
Ohhhh ohhhh

Post Chorus

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Ohhh
