1 I could not do without Him!
Jesus is more to me
Than all the richest, fairest gifts
Of earth could ever be;
But the more I find Him precious,
And the more I find Him true,
The more I long for you to find
What He can be to you.
Why will you do without Him?
Is He not kind indeed?
Did He not die to save you?
Is He not all you need?
2 You need not do without Him,
For He is passing by;
He is waiting to be gracious,
Only waiting for your cry;
He is waiting to receive you
To make you all His own,
Why will you do without Him,
And wander on alone? [Refrain]
3 What will you do without Him?
When He hath shut the door,
And you are left outside because
You would not come before?
When it is no use knocking,
No use to stand and wait,
For the word of doom tolls thro’ your breast,
That terrible, “Too late!” [Refrain]
4 Why should you do without Him?
It is not yet too late;
He has not closed the day of grace,
He has not shut the gate.
He calls you!—Oh, He calls you!
He would not have you go
Another step without Him,
Because He loves you so. [Refrain]
