Does anyone have the words and music to this song
Posted:  18 Aug 2007 01:46
Houses and lands I may not own,many riches be unknown.  Little person  in
this world I may be.  I can't keep up with the style,but I know I'm  God's own
child and I claim Jesus first and that's enough for me.

chorus: I claim Jesus first of all,he will answer when I call for I know I have a
soul the Son set free.  I am God's own child by birth,  highest honor on this earth and I claim Jesus first and that's enough for me.

Others live on wealth and pride,I am poor but satisfied.  Great  Jeovah owns
this  whole world don't youe see?  Underneath His loving wing,I'm as happy
as a kingand I claim Jesus first and that's enough for me.

Hi:  I do not have words or music to this song, but learned it from a Gospel group, some 50+ years ago.  The first verse I know is different, and the chorus a little different.  I'm including the words I know.  Hope this helps.
    Vs 1 - Houses and lands I may not own, wealth and riches to be know.  Humble person in this world I may be.  I can't keep up with the time but I know I'm doin' fine.  I claim Jesus first and that's enough for me.
  CHO- I claim Jesus first of all, He always answers when I call.  For I know I am a soul the Son set free.  I am God's own child by birth, highest honor on this earth.  I claim Jesus first and that's enough for me.
NOTE:  Once I heard jimmy Swaggart sing this song, but with different words on one of his TV shows some years back.  Blessings.

There is a third verse as well...

Oh how precious is his grace when you know the time and place,
that you left this sinful world down on your knees,
Jesus bought my fallen soul, now its better felt then told.
I claim Jesus first and that's enough for me.

(1)Houses and lands I may not own, many riches be unknown, one little person in this world I may be, I can't keep up with its style but I know I'm God's own child. I claim Jesus first and thats enough for me

Chorus: I claim Jesus first of all, well he'll answer when I call for I know I have a soul the Son set free. Well underneath his loving wings I'm just as happy as a king, I claim Jesus first and thats enough for me.

(2)Well how precious is his grace when you know the time and the place that you left this world of sin down on your knees, Jesus caught my falling soul, its better felt than told, I claim Jesus first and thats enough for me.
