1 Why will you do without Him,
Is He not kind indeed?
Did He not die to save your soul?
Is He not all you need?

Why will you, why will you,
Why will you do without Him?
Why will you, why will you,
Why will you do without Him?

2 Why will you do without Him,
Hark! hear Him call again!
“Come unto Me! Come unto Me!”
O shall He call in vain?

Why will you, why will you,
Why will you do without Him?
Why will you, why will you,
Why will you do without Him?

3 What will you do without Him
When death is drawing near,
Without His love—the only love
That casts out every fear?

What will you, what will you,
What will you do without Him?
What will you, what will you,
What will you do without Him?

4 What will you do without Him,
When He hath shut the door,
And you are left outside, because
You would not come before?

What will you, what will you,
What will you do without Him?
What will you, what will you,
What will you do without Him?

5 You cannot do without Him!
There is no other name,
By which you ever can be saved,
No way, no hope, no claim!

You cannot, you cannot,
You cannot do without Him!
You cannot, you cannot,
You cannot do without Him!

6 You cannot do without Him!
God’ word is ever true;
The world is passing to its doom—
And you are passing too!

You cannot, you cannot,
You cannot do without Him!
You cannot, you cannot,
You cannot do without Him!

Havergal, Frances Ridley, daughter of the Rev. W. H. Havergal, was born at Astley, Worcestershire, Dec. 14, 1836. Five years later her father removed to the Rectory of St. Nicholas, Worcester. In August, 1850, she entered Mrs. Teed's school, whose influence over her was most beneficial. In the following year she says, "I committed my soul to the Saviour, and earth and heaven seemed brighter from that moment." A short sojourn in Germany followed, and on her return she was confirmed in Worcester Cathedral, July 17, 1853. In 1860 she left Worcester on her father resigning the Rectory of St. Nicholas, and resided at different periods in Leamington, and at Caswall Bay, Swansea, broken by visits to Switzerland, Scotland, and North Wales.
