“Without Thee”


Pastor Jeffrey Saw strumming his 12-string guitar

“Without Thee” an original chorus & song composition by Paul Chong with music sung  beautifully by Pastor Jeffrey Saw.

Pastor Saw first came to Perth in 1991 as a religious worker from Myanmar, sponsored by the former Church of Resurrection.

 He was then a young man with a mop of dark black hair.

Today his black hair has been replaced by grey and through sheer hard work, he has built up a church with well over 150 members in the congregation, mainly of Karen minority.

These people has settled down peacefully in a peaceful & harmonious environment, so drastically different from being prosecuted in Myanmar. The little town of Katanning south of Perth is said to be attracting quite a number of Karen minority.

With God’s guidance, love & care, the Karen people are now happy Australians

“Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil – it has no point.”

Without Thee”

– lyrics by Paul Chong     Music by Pastor Jeffrey Saw

I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing.” – John15:5

WHAT will we ever be without Thee

We are all but empty vessels indeed

Without Thee there can’t be any destiny

Only with Thy Spirit will our bondage be free.


“Glory, glory, glorious God

Only with Thy love

‘Only with Thy grace\

Will we know our fate.”



Without Thee nothing will be possible

Nor  life or spirit of survival

For thou art the vine; we’re just branches

Only with Thy Spirit will we be free from the crunch.

Lyrics: Paul Chong    Music: Pastor Jeffrey Saw
