Jim Reeves – 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
Yes I'd rather be led by his nail pierced hands
Than to be the king of a vast domain and be held in sins dread sway
I'd rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today

[ vibes ]
I'd rather have Jesus than worldly applause
I'd rather be faithful to his dear cause
I'd rather have Jesus than world wide fame
I'd rather be true to his holy name
Than to be the king...
