Words and music by Greg X. Volz

How can, how can we who are dead to sin
Live any longer therein?
We've been, we have been called and loved and forgiven
Our old life is forgotten

Do you remember what he's called you out of?
Do you remember where you were?
Let us not take advantage of his love
That we forget that we have been forgiven
Without Him we can do nothing

I know, I know where I was when He found me
With so much confusion around me
He's been, He has been all that we would let Him
Without Him we can do nothing


Live versionsEdit

"Without Him We Can Do Nothing" was part of "The Praise Medley" featured in the 1986 live album Captured in Time and Space. It is the second song performed in the medley, after "Let Everything that Hath Breath" and followed by "Praise Ye the Lord".
