I'd Rather Have Jesus

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,
And be held in sin’s dread sway.
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This old 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.

Chorus:
Than to be the king of a vast domain,
And be held in sin’s dread sway.
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.
This old world affords today.
