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.
1 No, not my power, but Thine, O Lord
Can succor me, or peace afford.
Thy Spirit, Lord, Thy gentle voice,
Alone can make this heart rejoice!
No, not my power—nor aught I have—
Nor aught in earth can be my stay;
’Tis Thou and Thou alone canst save!
Oh, Lord, I need Thee every day.
2 No, not my power, oh, Savior, dear!
Can soothe one pain, can dry one tear;
How soon would fail my feeble power
Except Thou help me every hour! [Refrain]
3 No, not my power, most holy One!
Can comfort when life’s race is run;
Alas! the help of man, how vain,
Except Thy Spirit, Lord, remain! [Refrain]
4 No, not my power, almighty God!
Could stand beneath Thy chastening rod;
Except Thou, Lord, in love appear,
To draw Thy Holy Spirit near! [Refrain]
5 No, not my power, oh, Lord of earth!
Can save me from the jaws of death;
’Tis Thou, Thy Spirit, Lord, I need!
’Tis Thou, alone canst rise the dead! [Refrain]Source: The Cyber Hymnal #11086
