I\'D RATHER HAVE JESUS

I was listening to a CD I enjoy this evening, & one of my very favorite songs came on.  It's one that has inspired & comforted me since I was a little girl of around 5, when things weren't going too well in my family, & my daddy was moving out.  I want to share the words with you, in hopes of it speaking to your hearts, too.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 nailpierced hand.Refrain:  Than to be the king of a vast domain.           Or 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 worldwide fame.I'd rather be true to His holy name.He's fairer than lilies of rarest bloom.He's sweeter than honey from out of the comb;He's all that my hungering spirit needs,I'd rather have Jesus and let Him lead.MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!
