So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site.

Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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.
