Representative Text

1 Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Oh! can it, can it be?
Like a ship without a rudder,
On a wild and stormy sea!

Oh, to be without a Saviour!
With no hope or refuge nigh;
Can it be, O blessed Saviour,
One without Thee dares to die!

2 Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Lonely and dark the way;
With no light, no hope in Jesus,
Making bright the cheerless day. [Refrain]

3 Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
No help nor refuge nigh;
How can you, my friend and brother,
Dare to life or dare to die? [Refrain]

4 Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Dark will the voyage be;
Clouds will gather, storms surround you,
Oh, to Christ for refuge flee! [Refrain]

5 Out of Christ, without a Saviour,
Give to Him now your heart,
Ere the door of mercy closes,
And you hear His word, "depart." [Refrain]
