I’d Rather Have Jesus

November 7, 2014

Here is little Sidney singing one of our favorite bedtime songs last night….with her Daddy on the guitar.

Be still my heart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

Than to be the queen of a vast domain

Or 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.

Than to be the queen of a vast domain

Or be held in sin’s dread sway

I’d rather have Jesus than anything

This world affords today.

He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom

He’s sweeter than honey from out the comb

He’s all that my hungering spirit needs

I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead

Than to be the queen of a vast domain

Or be held in sin’s dread sway

I’d rather have Jesus than anything

This world affords today.
