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.) :)
- 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 domainAnd be held in sin’s dread sway;I’d rather have Jesus than anythingThis 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
