I'd Rather Have Jesus
recorded By Jim Reeves
written by
Rhea F. Miller - George B. Shea

G C G
I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold
D7
I'd rather be His than have riches untold
G C G
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands
D7 G
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

D7 C G
Than to be the king of a vast domain
D7 C G
And be held in sin's dread s-way
C G
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
D7 G
This world affords today

C G
I'd rather have Jesus than worldly applause
D7
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause
G C G
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame
D7 G
I'd rather be true to His holy name

Repeat #2
C G
He's fairer than lilies of rarest bloom
D7
He's sweeter than honey from out the comb
G C G
He's all that my hungering spirit needs
D7 G
I'd rather have Jesus and let Him lead

Repeat #2
