Talking to Jesus Lyrics – Elevation Worship & Maverick City Music

Grandma use 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
And now I know she was right

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

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

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

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

I’ve got 3 of my own now
Trying to raise them up right
My oldest is 15
And I remember what that was like
Trying to deal with the drama
Trying to figure out the questions in life
And I’ve been looking for a way to show him
How to make it alright

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

We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
We started talking to Jesus
Oh…

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

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

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
Cause it’s more like a friendship
Just talk to your Father
Like you are his kid

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
You can talk to Jesus
Whenever you like

Just start talking to Jesus
Just start talking to Jesus
Just keep talking to Jesus
For the rest of your life

Just talk, oh
Just talk, just talk, just talk to Jesus

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…

What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
Oh…
