Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

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

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have 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.

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

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

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

No one, my Lord, like thee

Full Text

1 No one, my Lord, like thee, no one so true;
Thou never wilt forsake the journey through,
Thou art the only friend
Abiding to the end;
No friend have I like thee, no friend like thee.

2 No help, my Lord, but thee, no strength mine own,
All which by self I've wrought hath weakness shown.
With help from thee I win
Vict'ry o'er every sin;
No help have I but thee, no help but thee.

3 No guide, my Lord, like thee, my path to show;
No one to counsel me whither to go.
Thou wilt the way prepare
And go before me there;
No guide have I like thee, no guide like thee.

4 No hope, my Lord, but thee that will avail,
My claims of righteousness will not prevail.
I gain alone in thee
Life and eternity;
No hope have I but thee, no hope but thee.
