Take the world, but give me Jesus,
All it’s joys are but a name;
For His love abideth ever,
through eternal years the same
Take the world but give me Jesus,
Sweetest comforts of my soul;
With my Savior watching over me,
I can sing though billows roll
Take the world by give me Jesus,
Let me view His constant smile;
Then throughout this life’s long journey,
He will lead me all the while
Take the world, but give me Jesus.
In His cross my trust shall be,
Till, with clearer, brighter vision,
Face to face my Lord I see!
Take the world, but give me Jesus! (repeat 4x)
Oh, the height and depth of mercy!
Oh the length and breadth of love!
Oh, the fullness of redemption
Oh the Pledge of endless life above! (repeat 2x)
