480. I Have No Other Comfort

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

2 Your blood is full atonement
for all my sin and guilt;
the cross is all my glory;
on you my faith is built.
And you, my great deliv'rer,
are my preserver too;
you guide all of my footsteps,
and lead me clearly 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 the Holy Spirit
I fully am assured
that mine is life eternal
according to your Word.

4 And so you make me willing
with all my heart and mind
to live for you, my Savior,
so loving, true, and kind.
To you with soul and body,
O Jesus, I belong;
you are my only Master
and my Redeemer strong.
