Representative Text

1 The world has its heroes and men of renown,
Before whom it bendeth its knee;
It meets them and greets them with cheer and with crown,
But Jesus is precious to me.

Refrain:
Jesus is precious to me,
Jesus is precious to me;
I love and adore him
And worship before him,
For Jesus is precious to me.

2 The world has its treasures and riches untold,
And craves for the things that you see;
It seeks satisfaction in silver and gold,
But Jesus is precious to me. [Refrain]

3 He loved me and gave himself for me to die,
He suffered that I might go free;
He’s gone to prepare me a mansion on high;
Yes, Jesus is precious to me. [Refrain]
