[Verse 1]
G                          C         G
I'd rather have Jesus than silver or gold
                                     D7
I'd rather be His than have riches untold
    G                      C         G
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or lands
                         D7           G
I'd rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

[Refrain]

        D7               C    G
Than to be the king of a vast domain
       D7                  C  G
And be held in sin's dread s-way
                           C   G
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
           D7      G
This world affords today

[Verse 2]
                           C       G
I'd rather have Jesus than worldly applause
                                   D7
I'd rather be faithful to His dear cause
    G                      C         G
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide fame
                      D7       G
I'd rather be true to His holy name  
 
[Refrain]

        D7               C    G
Than to be the king of a vast domain
       D7                  C  G
And be held in sin's dread s-way
                           C   G
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
           D7      G
This world affords today

[Verse 3]
                           C      G
He's fairer than lilies of rarest bloom 
                                     D7
He's sweeter than honey from out the comb
     G                     C      G
He's all that my hungering spirit needs
                          D7      G
I'd rather have Jesus and let Him lead

[Refrain]

        D7               C    G
Than to be the king of a vast domain
       D7                  C  G
And be held in sin's dread s-way
                           C   G
I'd rather have Jesus than anything
           D7      G
This world affords today
