I’d Rather Have Jesus

I was born again about 29 years ago. Although my Christian walk has not been without its ups and downs, after all these years I can still say, “I’d rather have Jesus than anything this world affords today.” Here’s George Beverly Shea singing the song he composed, recorded during the 1957 Billy Graham crusade in New York City.

Correction: Shea composed the tune (in 1932). The words were written in 1922 by Mrs. Rhea F. Miller (1894-1966).
