Representative Text

1 What can I do without Jesus,
When full of life’s burdens and care?
His love and protection so precious,
I’ll seek every moment to share.

Oh, yes, I’ll now cling to Jesus—
To Jesus I’ll cling and be saved;
I’ll follow His footsteps with gladness,
Till I see Him in glory arrayed.

2 What can I do without Jesus,
When sorrows unbidden arise?
Oh, when I am filled with deep sadness,
As onward I press to the skies. [Refrain]

3 What can I do without Jesus,
When Satan comes in like a flood—
O’er whelming my soul with dread anguish,
To draw me away from my God? [Refrain]

4 What can I do without Jesus,
When sickness and pain are severe,
And earth can no comfort afford me?
Oh, then may my Savior be near. [Refrain]

5 What can I do without Jesus,
When nearing the dark, chilly wave?
Alone I must pass through the shadow
If none can be near me to save. [Refrain]
