Id-Rathe-Have-Jesus

With full respect given to Mrs. Rhea F. Miller, (1894-1966) for “I’d Rather Have Jesus,” and to Fanny J. Crosby for “Take the World but Give Me Jesus.”

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21)

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

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

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 king of a vast domain
And 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 king of a vast domain
And be held in sin’s dread sway
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today

TAKE THE WORLD BUT GIVE ME JESUS – Francis J. Crosby – Blind Poet

  1. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    All its joys are but a name;
    But His love abideth ever,
    Through eternal years the same.
    • Refrain:
      Oh, the height and depth of mercy!
      Oh, the length and breadth of love!
      Oh, the fullness of redemption,
      Pledge of endless life above!
  2. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    Sweetest comfort of my soul;
    With my Savior watching o’er me,
    I can sing though billows roll.
  3. Take the world, but give me Jesus,
    Let me view His constant smile;
    Then throughout my pilgrim journey
    Light will cheer me all the while.
  4. Take the world, but give me Jesus;
    In His cross my trust shall be,
    Till, with clearer, brighter vision,
    Face to face my Lord I see.
