Nothing Between My Soul And The Savior

 

Nothing between my soul and my Savior,

so that his blessed face may be seen;
nothing preventing the least of his favor;
keep the way clear! let nothing between.

We have started a series at our church on prayer. As I was listening to the message, I could not help but think of the words to the great hymn, Nothing Between. May this be a blessing to you.

The writer of this hymn was Charles Albert Tindley. He was born in Berlin, Maryland, July 7, 1851 to a slave father and a mother who was a freed woman. In 1875 he moved to Philadelphia with his wife. He became a janitor at a Methodist church while taking correspondence classes to become a pastor. In 1902 he came back to that church and became the pastor. This church quickly grew to over 12,000 in membership and was a multicultural church.

While studying for a message in 1906, a gust of wind blew in through the window and blew his papers to the floor. As he was picking the papers up he thought the words “Let Nothing Between.” And that was the beginning of this song.

As you read through the lyrics of this song. Read slowly. Focus on the words.

This song has some incredibly rich and challenging words that will penetrate the heart. There are tons of biblical truths in these words. So as you read be thinking of some of the Bible passages that is being referenced.  Let these words challenge and change you.

Below the words, is a link to a guy singing this great hymn. It is a great one to learn.

My prayer is that there would be nothing between my soul and the Savior. May that be your prayer as well and may it stir your heart.

  1. Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
    naught of this world’s delusive dream;
    I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
    Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.

(Chorus)

Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
so that his blessed face may be seen;
nothing preventing the least of his favor;
keep the way clear! Let nothing between.

  1. Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
    habits of life, though harmless they seem,
    must not my heart from him ever sever;
    he is my all, there’s nothing between.
    (Go To The Chorus)
  2. Nothing between, like pride or station;
    self or friends shall not intervene;
    though it may cost me much tribulation,
    I am resolved, there’s nothing between.
    (Go To The Chorus)
  3. Nothing between, e’en many hard trials,
    though the whole world against me convene;
    watching with prayer and much self denial,
    I’ll triumph at last, there’s nothing between.
    (Go To The Chorus)
