Gloria Gaither – I'd Rather Have Jesus lyrics

I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold
I'd rather, rather have Him than 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 the vast domains
Than be held in sins dread sway
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world can afford today

I'd rather have Jesus than man's applause
See, I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause
Oh, I'd rather have my Jesus than all the worldwide fame
Yes, I'd rather be true to His holy, to His holy name

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Than be held in sins dread sway
Oh, I'd rather have You, Jesus, than anything
This world can afford today, oh, yes

I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world can afford, can afford today

I just love Him
I love You Lord more than anything, anything

I'd rather have Jesus than man's applause
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause
I'd rather have my Jesus than all the worldwide fame
You see, I'd rather be true to my Saviour's holy name

Than to be a king of a vast domain
Than be held in sins dread sway
Oh, I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world can afford to be

You see, I'd rather have my Jesus
He's been good to me
I'd rather have my Jesus than any, than anything
This world can afford, can afford today
I love You
