Representative Text

1 Oh, what would I do without Jesus?
I have wondered again and again,
For I know that a life lived without Him,
Is a life full of sorrow and pain.

Refrain:
Oh, what would I do without Jesus,
When the days with their shadows grow dim;
When the doubt billows roll, sweeping over my soul,
Then what would I do without Him?

2 Oh, what would I do without Jesus,
When the dearest of friends pass away,
And my soul gropes around in the darkness
And its long ere the light of the day? [Refrain]

3 Oh, what would I do without Jesus,
On the day when the trumpets have blown,
If I’ve never obeyed His commandments,
Or the joy of His service have known? [Refrain]
