I'd rather have Jesus
-
1. I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold,
I'd rather be His than have riches untold;
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands,
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand.
-
Chorus:
Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin's dread sway;
I'd rather have Jesus than anything.
This world affords today.
-
2. I'd rather have Jesus than men's applause,
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause;
I'd rather have Jesus than world-wide fame,
I'd rather be true to His holy name.
-
Chorus:
Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sin's dread sway;
I'd rather have Jesus than anything.
This world affords today.

I have always loved this song. It makes you ask yourself, do I want Jesus more than anything else?
