Lord, I treasure the moments
the starting of my day,
all is quiet and peaceful
I can kneel and pray.
in the turmoil of life
moments are so very few,
I can steal away
spend some time with you.
thank you for each blessing, Lord,
had more than my share,
if I should ask for more,
would be for moments, spent in prayer.
I’d rather have the moments,
than fame or wealth.
precious are the moments
I have you to myself.
count each tiny moment
treasure beyond compare.
more than gold or silver
my moments with you in prayer.

I'd Rather Have Jesus
I'd rather have Jesus than silver or
I'd rather be His than have riches
I'd rather have Jesus than houses or
I'd rather be led by His nail pierced
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.
I'd rather have Jesus than men's
I'd rather be faithful to His dear
I'd rather have Jesus than worldwide
I'd rather be true to His holy name.
He's fairer than lilies of rarest
He's sweeter than honey from out the
He's all that my hungering spirit
I'd rather have Jesus and let him
