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

No one, my Lord, like thee

Representative 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.
