I Could Not Do Without Thee

By Miss F. R. Havergal (1836-1879)

Meter:  7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.

I could not do without Thee,
O Savior of the lost,
Whose precious blood redeemed me
At such tremendous cost!
Thy righteousness, Thy pardon,
Thy precious blood must be
My only hope and comfort,
My glory and my plea!

Why will you do without Him?
The word of God is true:
The world to doom is passing,
And you are passing too.
It may be no tomorrow
Shall dawn on you or me;
Why will you risk the peril
Of lost eternity?

But with Him—O, with Jesus!
Are any words so blest?
With Jesus, joy unending,
And everlasting rest!
With Jesus—hearts now empty
Filled with His perfect love;
His perfect peace each moment,
Till perfect bliss above.
