I'd Rather Have Jesus recorded By Jim Reeves written byRhea 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
