Illus.: Joseph Scriven was a young man who was deeply in love and engaged to be married. Just days before the wedding, his fiancé drowned accidentally. For months he was bitter and discouraged, but out of this experience he came to know Christ. His life was so changed that he sat down and wrote a hymn all of us have sung: “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”
