Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

I Have No Other Comfort

Representative Text

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.
