Representative Text

1 Do not think you can live without Jesus,
If you trust in yourself you must fail;
There is no other friend who can help you,
When the storms of temptation assail.

Refrain:
Do not think you can live without Jesus,
You will need Him by night and day;
Do not thing you can live without Jesus to guide,
You will need Him each step of the way.

2 Do not think you can live without Jesus,
You have burdens too heavy to bear;
In the long, lonely night of your sorrow,
Only Jesus your trials can share. [Refrain]

3 Do not think you can live without Jesus,
As the ages eternally roll;
You must hide in the arms everlasting,
In your Saviour, the life of the soul. [Refrain]
