I’d Rather Have Jesus

In memory of a faithful servant of God — George Beverly Shea who passed away last week.

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 lands,
I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hands.

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.

Than to be the king of a vast domain,
Or be held in sin’s dread sway.
I’d rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.
