Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

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?
