In the mornin’ when I rise,
In the mornin’ when I rise,
In the mornin’ when I rise,
Give me Jesus!

Give me Jesus!
Give me Jesus!
You can have all the world, but
Give me Jesus!

‘Twixt the cradle and the grave,
‘Twixt the cradle and the grave,
‘Twixt the cradle and the grave,
Give me Jesus!

Give me Jesus!
Give me Jesus!
You can have all the world, but
Give me Jesus!
