    I can live without fame
    walk through storms drenched
    from the strain of all the rain
    crawl through darkness without
    sight
    but
    I cannot live without Jesus holding
    me close and tight

    I can be homeless without a friend
    to lean on
    without shelter from harm just all alone
    hunger and thirst as my body groan
    but
    as long as I have Jesus within my sight
    I will keep fighting the good fight
    cause within his closeness I see the end
    of the tunnel shining with light

    Praying for world peace within times
    unsettled with wars and death
    I keep him ever so close to me
    for without him where would I be
    just another soul without direction
    to see
    I keep him close ever so close
