Welcome and Church Family News Call to Worship Praise: CH4 506: All I once held dear The Offering Prayer and the Lord’s Prayer Praise: I’d rather have Jesus 1. 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 And be held in sin’s dread sway; I’d rather have Jesus than anything This world affords today.
2. 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 the king…….. 3. 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. Than to be the king……..
