Hi Mohammed,
 
As far as I know, you will need your password to decrypt the address.
 
Anyway, you should use the BitcoinPaperWallet.com site. Please see our guide to creating a paper wallet securely, as the same security procedures will apply to dealing with your privkey:

Once booted to an offline machine in a Live OS, you may proceed to use the downloaded site to “Validate” your privkey. See here for further details:
