Can you do without the Savior

Representative Text

1 Can you do without the Saviour,
Tend’rer far than human friend?
When this poor, weak frame with anguish
Direst pain and sorrow rend?

Can you, can you do without him?
Shall you not his pity need?
Trembling sinner, can you, can you
Do without this Friend indeed?

2 Can you do without the Saviour
When the last loud trump shall sound?
When th’entombed millions gather,
And the judgment seat surround? [Refrain]

3 Can you do without the Saviour,
With the elements aflame?
When the voice of God like thunder
Shall in wrath pronounce your name? [Refrain]
