George Beverly Shea: 1909-2013

This sweet man passed away a few days ago... at the age of 104. I had not heard of him before... and I looked him up.

All I can say is WOW! He has an incredible voice. Give this a listen! I posted the lyrics below. They are good words to remember...

(Pardon the 800 number. I'm guessing this is from a Billy Graham show.) :)

  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
    • Refrain:
      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
  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

  1. Matthew and I just listened to this the other day too! I love the words to this song! As Paul Washer says "Jesus isn't all we need He is all we have"
