Hymn Study ~ Just Give Me Jesus



In the morning, when I rise

Give me Jesus.

You can have all this world,

Just give me Jesus.


When I am alone,

Give me Jesus.


Give me Jesus.

You can have all this world,

Just give me Jesus.



When I come to die,

Give me Jesus.


Give me Jesus.

You can have all this world,

Just give me Jesus.


Give me Jesus.

You can have all this world,

Just give me Jesus.

And this  

Give Me Jesus by Frances J. Crosby, 1879


Take the world, but give me Jesus, All its joys are but a name;

But His love abideth ever, Through eternal years the same.

Refrain:

Oh, the height and depth of mercy!

Oh, the length and breadth of love!

Oh, the fullness of redemption,

Pledge of endless life above!


Take the world, but give me Jesus, Sweetest comfort of my soul;

With my Savior watching o’er me, I can sing though billows roll.

Take the world, but give me Jesus, Let me view His constant smile;

Then throughout my pilgrim journey Light will cheer 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.
