Jeff Deyo – I'd Rather Have Jesus lyrics

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 land
I'd rather be led to His nail-pierced hand
Than to be the king of a vast domain or be held in sins dread sway
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today
I'd rather have Jesus than vain 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
