Lyrics

Out of Christ, without a Sav­ior,
Oh, can it, can it be?
Like a ship without a rudder,
On a wild and stormy sea.

Refrain

Oh, to be without a Sav­ior,
With no hope or refuge nigh!
Can it be, O blessèd Sav­ior,
One without Thee dare to die?

Out of Christ, without a Sav­ior,
Lonely and dark the way,
With no light, no hope in Je­sus,
Making bright the cheerless day.

Refrain

Out of Christ, without a Sav­ior,
No help or refuge nigh,
How can you, O friend and brother,
Dare to live or dare to die?
