HOUSE AND LAND

[G] House and land I may not own
Many [C] riches be un[G]known
Little person in this world I may [D] be
I can't [G] keep up with the style
But I [C] know I'm  God's own[G] child
I claim Jesus first and [D] that's enough for [G] me 

Chorus
 
I claim [C] Jesus first of all 
He will [G] answer when I call 
For I know I have a soul
The son set [D] free
I am  [G] God's own child by birth 
Highest [C] honor on this [G] earth
I claim Jesus first and [D] that's enough for [G] me

[G]Some folks live on wealth and pride
I am [C] poor but sati[G]fied
For Jesus owns this world don't you [D] see
I'm as [G] happy as a king 
Under[C]neath His loving [G] wing
I claim Jesus first and [D] that's enough for [G] me

Chorus

[G] I remember the time and place
When [C] I found his saving [G] grace
And I left this world of sin down on my [D]  knees
Jesus [G] caught my falling soul 
It is [C] better felt than [G]  told
I claim Jesus first and [D] that's enough for [G] me
