I’d rather have Jesus

I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold
I’d rather have Him than have riches untold
I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands
I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced Hands

Than to be a king of a vast domain
and be held in sin’s dread sway
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
this world affords today.

I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause
I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause
I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame
I’d rather be true to His Holy Name

He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom
He’s sweeter than honey from out of the comb
He’s all that my hungering spirit needs
I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead

~ Words:  Rhea F. Miller, 1922
Music:  George Beverly Shea, 1932 ~
