TAKE THE WORLD BUT GIVE ME JESUS

I've thrown it all away
That I might gain a life in you
I've found, all else is lost compared
To the joys of knowing you
Your beauty and your majesty
Are far beyond compare
You've won my heart
Now this will be my prayer.
Take the world but give me Jesus
You're the treasure in this life
Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry
Now I've seen you as The Saviour
I will leave the rest behind
Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry.
Into the world I go
That I might live this life of love
I won't be overcome for
you are in me and you are strong
For time and for eternity
I know I'm in your care
You've won my heart
Now this will be my prayer.
Take the world but give me Jesus
You're the treasure in this life
Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry
Now I've seen you as The Saviour
I will leave the rest behind
Take the world but give me Jesus is my cry...
