One of my favorite hymns from history past is “I’d Rather Have Jesus.” The words are incredibly powerful and what I greatly long for my life to exhibit.
This week one of my favorite music groups (Selah) released their new album – and its outstanding! And low and behold, guess what track number 9 is? Yep, you guessed it.
Take a look at these amazing words, and may they be the cry of your life today!
And if you haven’t heard the new Selah album yet (entitled “You Amaze Us”), I encourage you to check it out. Every song is well done and powerful: iTunes | Amazon
I’d Rather Have Jesus
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 hand
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 the comb;
He’s all that my hungering spirit needs;
I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead
