I'd Rather Have Jesus
PopularHymns.com

Id rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
Id rather be His than have riches untold;
Id rather have Jesus than houses or lands;
Id rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Refrain:
Than to be the king of a vast domain,
Or be held in sins dread sway;
Id rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

Id rather have Jesus than mens applause;
Id rather be faithful to His dear cause;
Id rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
Id rather be true to His holy name

Hes fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
Hes sweeter than honey from out the comb;
Hes all that my hungering spirit needs;
Id rather have Jesus and let Him lead
