I'd Rather Have Jesus Misc. Gospel
I'd r[C]ather have [C7]Jesus than [F]silver or [C]gold,
I'd rather be His than have rich[G7]es [C]unt[G]old;
I'd [C]rather have [C7]Jesus than [F]houses or [C]lands,
I'd rather be l[C7]ed [F]by His n[G]ail-pierced [C]hand . . .
Than to [G7]be [Am]the [G7]king of a [Am]vast [F]do[C]main
And be [G7]held [Am]in [G7]sin's dread [F]sway. [C]
I'd rather have [C7]Jesus than [F]anyt[C]hing
This [G]world affords [F]today.[C]
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 . . .
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.
