477. I Have No Other Comfort

1 I have no other comfort
which life and death endures
than that I am my Saviour's
whose death my life secures.
To thee with soul and body,
O Jesus, I belong;
thou art my only Master,
and my Redeemer strong.

2 Thy blood is full atonement
for all my sin and guilt;
the cross is all my glory;
on thee my faith is built.
And thou, my great deliv'rer,
art my preserver too;
thou guidest all my footsteps,
and leadest me clear through.

3 Whatever things betide me
must serve to save my soul;
the Father watches o'er me
to keep me safe and whole.
Yes, by thy Holy Spirit
I fully am assured
that mine if life eternal
according to thy Word.

4 And so thou mak'st me willing
with all my heart and mind
to live for thee, my Savior,
so loving, true, and kind.
To thee with soul and body,
O Jesus, I belong;
thou art my only Master,
and my Redeemer strong.
