E. M. Bounds on Prayer

Prayer is the channel through which all good flows to men.  Prayer is a privilege, a sacred, princely privilege.  Prayer is a duty, an obligation most binding, and most imperative, which should hold us to it.  But prayer is more than a privilege, more than a duty.  It is the appointed condition of getting God’s aid.  It is the avenue through which God supplies man’s wants.”


I’d Rather Have Jesus – than anything!

  1. I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold;
    I’d rather be His than have riches untold;
    I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands;
    I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

    • Refrain:
      Than to be the king of a vast domain
      And be held in sin’s dread sway;
      I’d rather have Jesus than anything
      This world affords today.
  2. I’d rather have Jesus than men’s applause;
    I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause;
    I’d rather have Jesus than worldwide fame;
    I’d rather be true to His holy name
  3. He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom;
    He’s sweeter than honey from out the comb;
    He’s all that my hungering spirit needs;
    I’d rather have Jesus and let Him lead
