This is a very simple song with few words. They are as follows: In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus. When I am alone, give me Jesus. When I come to die, give me Jesus. You can have all this world, but give me Jesus.
Just a few words, but it addresses the biggies doesn't it? The three areas that define a human being: in the morning (the time that sets the course for your whole day and determines who you will serve that day, Jesus or yourself) when I am alone (that's really when we are who we are isn't it?--when no other human is looking and only God sees us) and when I come to die (and that's when it matters because no one will escape death and everyone will be judged by God).
One more astounding phrase in this very simple song: You can have all this world, but give me Jesus (now is that true? and am I living that way?)
A simple but thought-provoking song (with a beautiful melody I might add).
