'Give Me Jesus' - Danny Gokey Worship Hit

Contemporary Christian artist Danny Gokey leads us in worship with ‘Give Me Jesus.’ This beautiful hymn reminds us all that we are safe in the arms of the Lord.


“In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
Give me Jesus”

This classic hymn is always a favorite. It was originally written in the 1800s as an African-American spiritual hymn, but over the years the lyrics have been modernized. The most famous interpretation comes from Fernando Ortega, a Dove award-winning singer and songwriter.

Today, Danny Gokey is performing his own rendition of ‘Give Me Jesus’ and it’s absolutely beautiful.

“Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
But give me Jesus”

We are so blessed to serve such a loving and gracious Father in Heaven. Even when times are uncertain, we can all find peace and comfort in the arms of the Lord. He is our protector and the source of our light and our strength.

Psalm 16:5-9 “5 You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need; my future is in your hands.
6 How wonderful are your gifts to me; how good they are!
7 I praise the Lord, because he guides me, and in the night my conscience warns me.
8 I am always aware of the Lord's presence; he is near, and nothing can shake me.
9 And so I am thankful and glad, and I feel completely secure.”
