  • TAKE THE WORLD BUT GIVE ME JESUS

    I've thrown it all away
    That I might gain a life in you
    I've found, all else is lost compared
    To the joys of knowing you
    Your beauty and your majesty
    Are far beyond compare
    You've won my heart
    Now this will be my prayer.
    Take the world but give me Jesus
    You're the treasure in this life
    Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry
    Now I've seen you as The Saviour
    I will leave the rest behind
    Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry.
    Into the world I go
    That I might live this life of love
    I won't be overcome for
    you are in me and you are strong
    For time and for eternity
    I know I'm in your care
    You've won my heart
    Now this will be my prayer.
    Take the world but give me Jesus
    You're the treasure in this life
    Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry
    Now I've seen you as The Saviour
    I will leave the rest behind
    Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry...
