Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

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.

Refrain:
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]
