Where Would We Be Without You?

 

Where would we be today?

Had You not held our hand,

strong Helper as we fell,

the year just past would have

a vastly different end

Had not Your love upheld us

we could not be where we are

Where would we be standing?

Had You not held us close,

true Guide along our way,

the road we walk would have

a vastly different end 

Had not Your love guided us

we could not stand where we are

Where would we be going?

Had You not come our way,

the Saviour from our shame,

these days we live would have

a vastly different end 

Had not Your love reclaimed us

we could not go where You are

Where would we be without You?

You have filled our hearts with beauty

and we praise Your matchless Name
