Take the world


    • Take the world, but give me Jesus! 
    • All its joys are but a name, 
    • but His love abideth ever, 
    • through eternal years the same. 

    • 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 Saviour 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
