Hymn For Today

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 Precious Blood must be
My only hope and comfort
My glory and my plea

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

I could  not do without Thee
For oh the way is long
And I am often weary
And sigh replaces song
How could I do without Thee
I do not know the way
Thou knowest and Thou leadest
And wilt not let me stray

I could not do without Thee
O Jesu Saviour dear
E'en when my eyes are holden
I know that Thou art near
How dreary and how lonely
This changeful life would be
Without the sweet communion
The secret rest with Thee

I could not do without Thee
No other friend can read
The Spirit's strange deep longings
Interpreting its needs
No human heart can enter
Each dim recess of mine
And sooth and hush and calm it
O Blessed Lord but Thine

I could not do without Thee
For years are fleeting fast
And soon in solemn loneness
The river must be passed
But Thou wilt never leave me
And though the waves roll high
I know Thou wilt be near me

And whisper it is I
