I'd Rather Have Jesus!

I’d Rather Have Jesus…


I’d rather have Jesus

than riches or gold!

I’d rather have him more than

 anything in this world!


I’d rather have Jesus than

any kind of wealth!

He’s brought to my life healing

and good health!


I’d rather have Jesus than

 anyone I know!

His blessings in me,

is what he wants to bestow!


I’d rather have Jesus than what

anyone could give!

He’s given an abundance

of love each day I live!


I’d rather have Jesus instead

of being “famous!”

The life that he brings to me…

 Is rather gracious!


I’d rather have Jesus! 

My soon and coming king!

H’s life for mine is what

he does bring!


Won’t you accept this same Jesus! 

He loves you so much!

You’ll never be the same

after his loving touch!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
