Need the lyrics for--->I'd Rather Know That I Had Jesus***Not the song I'd rather have Jesus. They are 2 different songs

Just looking for the lyrics for a song which is named "I'd Rather Know That I Had Jesus". And I don't know the group which sings it.

There is a song which is called I rather have Jesus, I am not looking for the lyrics for that song.

Here is refrain I do think

I'd rather know that I have Jesus,
and that He is My Dearest Friend.
Than to have the finest things this world could offer,
and still not have this peace within.

Hi Guest
Found a rough recording

I'll work on transcribing the words but in the meanwhile
I'd appreciate it if you'll provide as many that you can decipher
Thanks, Nancy

This is my feeble attempt at the lyrics
Please correct and/or add what you know
And I believe we will be able to come up with all the lyrics

?
If you may ask what brings ?
then brother I've got news for you

i'd rather know that i have Jesus
And through the years I'll feel this way
And have the finest things this world could offer
And still not have this peace within

You may rub shoulders with the rich and famous
?

i'd rather know that i have Jesus
And that He is my dearest friend
And have the finest things this world could offer
And still not have this peace within

Yountly and Guests

Can we all work on filling in the blanks to complete the song ?
Can anyone find a clearer recording?

Thanks for any effort

Hi Nancy, I have tried to find another recording of this song, I just found the same video, you have posted. And tried to find another copy of the lyrics, to, however was not there, either.

Then tried to listen to some times, and I am coming blank, too.

Really like the lyrics, you did get.

Nancy, Thanks for all the help you give everyone who request lyrics of different songs.

God Bless Your Family and You. (Smile)

Hi Smile
Thank you so much for your detective work and encouragement.
When you were listening to the song, did you even get one word I didn't ?
The reason I'm asking is it takes going over and over and over the parts I can't get
and then all of a sudden I'll understand the one word that opens up the whole phrase.
So if you and the rest of us can work on this it would mean a lot to me personally
Many blessings to you
Nancy
