I Could not Do without Thee

Verse 1:
I could not do without Thee,
O Saviour of the lost,
Whose precious blood redeemed me
At such tremendous cost;
Thy righteousness, Thy pardon,
Thy sacrifice, must be
My only hope and comfort,
My glory and my plea.

Verse 2:
I could not do without Thee,
I cannot stand alone;
I have no strength or goodness,
No wisdom of my own;
But Thou, beloved Saviour,
Art all in all to me,
And weakness will be power,
If leaning hard on Thee.

Verse 3:
I could not do without Thee,
For years are fleeting fast,
And soon in solemn silence
The river must be passed;
But Thou wilt never leave me,
And, tho’ the waves run high,
I know Thou wilt be near me,
And whisper, “It is I.”

Frances R. Havergal/Sigismund Thalberg, arr.
