"I Could Not Do Without Thee"


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.

I could not do without Thee,
I cannot stand alone,
I have no strength or goodness,
No wisdom of my own;
But Thou, beloved Savior,
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 Jesus, Savior 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 need;
No human heart could enter
Each dim recess of mine,
And soothe, and hush, and calm it,
O blessèd Lord, but Thine.

I could not do without Thee,
For years are fleeting fast,
And soon in solemn oneness
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.”


~ By Frances Ridley Havergal  (1836-1879) ~

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Psalm 73:25 
Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none
upon earth that I desire beside thee.


Where would we be without the Lord? He is the Friend that sticks
closer than a brother. He loves us beyond our own comprehension.
He gives us strength. He gives us rest. He bears our burdens.
We lean upon the Lord. We trust in Him. His wisdom is perfect.
His ways are always right. He will not let us stray-- He keeps
us in His care. Oh, how thankful we are for His presence in our
hearts and lives! Whatever you may be going through today,
Just bow your head and talk to your Friend. The Lord Jesus will
never leave you, nor forsake you. He is here to meet your need.

The Lord says in Jeremiah 33:3... 
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great
and mighty things, which thou knowest not.


1Peter 5:7 says:
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
