Heard this song in a dream I had last night. I don’t know who was singing, but he sounded like Jim Reeves.

Please don’t ask.


I’d Rather Have Jesus

Rhea F. Miller, 1922

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
