I'll Take Jesus by The Dixie Echoes


Song Lyrics


I'll Take Jesus
by The Dixie Echoes

Album: Golden Celebration


As they gambled for the robe He wore
They chose a worldly trail
And they didn't think of eternity
As the soldiers drove the nails
Will we learn from what they done
Or make the same mistake
Jesus or the world my child
Which one will you take

Chorus

I'll take Jesus, I'll take Jesus
I tried these worldly pleasures and they failed
When you see the gates of Heaven
And you hear the Master say
Me or the world my child
Which one did you take

When the pages of my life have turned
And time has rolled away
The greatest deeds that I have done
Won't help me on that day
And all my earthly treasures
That I have laid away
They'll be to me just a memory
And this you'll hear me say

Repeat Chorus, tag with:

When you see the gates of Heaven
And you hear the Master say
Me or the world my child
Which one did you take
I'll take Jesus

I was watching jimmy Swaggart tonight and heard Martha Borg sing this song. I had never heard it before, so I looked it up and found your group singing this. I love it, God Bless - guest / Aug 26, 2015
