Take The World But Give Me Jesus
recorded by George Jones
written by Todd Wilson Agnew and Frances Jane Crosby

Take the world but give me Jesus
       C                 G
Let me have His constant smile
And throughout my pilgrim journey
      A7                     D7
Faith shall cheer me all the while
Be Thou near me keep and cheer me
        C                      G
Through life's dark and stormy way
Turn my sadness into gladness
       D7            G
And my darkness into day
All my fears I give to Jesus
Rest my weary soul on Him
Though my way be hid in darkness
Never can His light grow dim
Let the road be rough and dreary
         C               G
And it's in for route of sight
Put it bravely strong and weary
         D7             G
Trust in God and do the right
Repeat #1 & 2
