lyrics

VERSE 1
Take the world, but give me Jesus
All its joys are but a name
But His love abides forever
Through eternal years the same

VERSE 2
Take the world, but give me Jesus
Sweetest comfort of my soul
With my Savior watching o’er me
I can sing though billows roll

CHORUS
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 this world, my God’s enough!

VERSE 3
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

BRIDGE
Take this world and give me Jesus
In His cross my trust shall be
Take this world and give me Jesus
Till that day my Lord I see
