you may have all this world;
give me Jesus.

Dark midnight was my cry,
dark midnight way my cry,
dark midnight was my cry,
give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus,
give me Jesus,
you may have all this world;
give me Jesus.

And when I am alone,
and when I am alone,
and when I am alone,
give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus,
give me Jesus,
you may have all this world;
give me Jesus.

Oh, when I come to die,
oh, when I come to die,
oh, when I come to die,
give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus,
give me Jesus,

give me Jesus.
