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 land
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sins dread sway
Oh I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today

I'd rather have Jesus than vain 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

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sins dread sway
Oh I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords

Than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sins dread sway
Oh I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today

Today, today, today
Today, today, today
I'd rather have Jesus
I'd rather have Jesus
I'd rather have Jesus

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

Oh than to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sins dread sway
Just to be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sins dread sway

Oh I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords
To be the king of a vast domain
Or be held in sins dread sway

Oh I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords, this world affords
This world affords today, today
