Alison Krauss I'd Rather Have Jesus Lyrics

Last updated: 01/23/2006 10:00:00 AM

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
Or be held in sin's dread sway
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
This world affords today.

--- Fiddle - Guitar Instrumental ---

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.

Than to be a 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 | Reviewer: Earl Fashbaugh | 5/6/2007

Currently living in Denmark, I visited the Roskilde Cathedral where a continuous line of royalty is entombed back to 960 AD. Each reign ruling family would want a place of burial in the church so that the cathedral was expanded over the millenium. The song, "I'd Rather Have Jesus" kept welling up in my heart as I thought about the largest castle in the Universe where I will one day see the Lord who stretched out his arms on the cross so he could embrace everyone in his Kingdom, forever.
