Lord, what would we do without you, whenever life tears us apart?
What would we do in our mourning, when shadows of pain cross our heart?
What would we do without you, when sad and alone ourselves find?
When bitterness knocks, fear answers the door, and even worse enters our mind?
What would we do when dark blossoms of winter drag into our lonely thoughts?
What would we do without you, you who gave us your Son and bought
Our freedom from sin and wickedness within…
Oh, Lord, what would we do without you?
To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— (Jude 1:24, NIV)
