Dear Lord, I treasure the moments

At the starting of my day,

When all is quiet and peaceful

And I can kneel and pray.

For in the turmoil of life

The moments are so very few,

When I can steal away

To spend some time with you.

I thank you for each blessing, Lord,

Ive had more than my share,

And if I should ask for more,

It would be for moments, spent in prayer.

For Id rather have the moments,

More than fame or wealth.

So precious are the moments

When I have you to myself.

I count each tiny moment

A treasure beyond compare.

Worth more than gold or silver

Are my moments with you in prayer.

I'd Rather Have Jesus

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 land,

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.

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.
