1 How can I live without Jesus?
My Rock and my Fortress is he;
I’m trusting alone in his mercy;
He ever my Saviour will be.
How can I live, how can I live,
How can I live without Jesus?
He is my Rock, He is my Hope!
How can I live without Jesus?

2 How can I bear without Jesus
The storms that encompass me here?
For tho’ in the darkest mid-ocean,
He speaks, “It is I, do not fear.”
How can I live? how can I work?
How can I bear, without Jesus?
He is my Strength, Comfort and Song!
How can I bear without Jesus?

3 How can I hope without Jesus,
For he is my bright Morning Star?
His blood that hath bought my salvation,
Brought me nigh who once was afar.
How can I hope, how can I hope,
How can I hope without Jesus?
His blood alone can guilt atone;
How can I hope without Jesus?

4 How can I die without Jesus?
He’ll be with me unto the end;
He never will leave nor forsake me,
My loving, unchangeable Friend.
How can I die, how can I die,
How can I die without Jesus?
Jesus, my Rock! Jesus, my Hope!
How can I die without Jesus?
