    Words by Rhea F. Miller and music by George Beverly Shea.



    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 hands

    Than to be a king of a vast domain
    And be held in sin's dread sway
    I'd rather have Jesus than anything
    This world affords today

    I'd rather have Jesus than man's applause
    See, I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause
    I'd rather have my Jesus than all worldwide fame
    I'd rather be true, true to His holy [to his], holy name


    Oh yes, I'd rather have Jesus than anything
    This world can afford [can afford] today
    I'd rather have You, Jesus, more than anything

    George Beverly Shea, Rhea F. Miller
