Better than gold

Representative Text

1 The love of Jesus is better than gold,
Better, aye, better a thousand fold:
It’s worth has never, no, never been told.
Better than gold, better than gold,
The love of Jesus is better than gold.

2 The blood of Jesus is better than gold,
Better, aye, better a thousand fold:
‘Twas shed for me in the ages of old.
Better than gold, better than gold,
The blood of Jesus is better than gold.

3 To trust in Jesus is better than gold,
Better, aye, better a thousand fold:
Who trust in Jesus His face shall behold.
Better than gold, better than gold,
To trust in Jesus is better than gold.

4 A home in heaven is better than gold,
Better, aye, better a thousand fold:
The gain eternal can never be told.
Better than gold, better than gold,
The home in heaven is better than gold.
