Sacred Songs of The End time


I'd Rather Have Jesus


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 hand.

Chorus:

Than to be a king of a vast domain,

And be held in sin's dread sway;

I'd rather have Jesus than anything,

This world affords today.


I'd rather have Jesus, than men's 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.

Chorus:

Than to be a king of a vast domain,

And be held in sin's dread sway;

I'd rather have Jesus than anything,

This world affords today.


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.

Chorus:

Than to be a king of a vast domain,

And be held in sin's dread sway;

I'd rather have Jesus than anything,

This world affords today.


I'd rather have Jesus than man-made creeds,

I'd rather be His than a fellowship card's;

I'd rather be seal-ed by the Holy Ghost,

Than receive the mark of the beast.

Last Chorus:

Than to be a king of a vast domain,

And be held in sin's dread sway;

I'd rather have Jeshua than anything,

This world affords today.
