Would you rather have silver and gold?

This song by Kirk Franklin has been stuck in my head and since I can’t sing it to y’all, I thought I’d share the lyrics…

Silver and gold
Silver and gold
I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold
No fame or fortune
Nor riches untold
I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold

Don’t give me a mansion on top of the hill
Don’t give me the world with a shallow thrill
But just give me a saviour my life He can hold
I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold

I woke up this morning feeling kind of down
I called on my best friend she could not be found
But I called on Jesus my life He can hold
I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold

For unto us a child is born
A son is given
I’d rather have Jesus
What profits a man to gain the whole world and lose His soul
I’d rather have Jesus
For there’s no other name given under heaven
Whereby we must be saved
I’d rather have Jesus
He’s the only one that can save you
I’d rather have Jesus than silver and gold

Praise is what I do!
