1 Take the world, but give me Jesus,
All its joys are but a name;
But His love abideth ever,
Thru eternal years the same.
O the height and depth of mercy!
O the length and breadth of love!
O the fullness of redemption,
Pledge of endless life above!
2 Take the world, but give me Jesus,
Sweetest comfort of my soul;
With my Savior watching o’er me,
I can sing tho billows roll. (Refrain)
3 Take the world, but give me Jesus,
Let me view His constant smile;
Then thruout my pilgrim journey
Light will cheer me all the while. (Refrain)
4 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. (Refrain)
