I’d Rather Have Jesus

I’d Rather Have Jesus

Words by Rhea F. Miller (1894-1966), 1922, Public Domain

Tune: I’D RATHER HAVE JESUS by George Beverly Shea (1909-2013), © Copyright 1939, Renewed 1966 by Chancel Music, Inc. Assigned to The Rodeheaver Co. (A Div. of Word, Inc.)

Key signature: D flat major (5 flats)

Meter: 11.11.11.10 with refrain

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

2. 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.

3. 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.
