No Not One ~ hymn

No Not One

We were singing this hymn today. My youngest leaned over and said, “Mom, that song is wrong. Jesus is NOT lowly! We should be singing ‘There’s not a friend like the holy Jesus.’ Then it would be right.”

How right she is. He is far from a lowly person in the sense of the world. He is, however, a great example of being lowly, as in humble. He did not brag. He did not toot his own horn, so to speak. He did not yell loudly to gain attention.

Our Lord did what He came to this earth to do – teach the truth, heal those who needed it, and show us the way to Heave – all of this following the Father’s plan.

What a wonderful example of serving humbly and walking in the path set out for us.

May we all be like the holy, lowly Jesus.

Blessings,
At Home.

No Not One

words: Johnson Oatman, Jr. (1895)
music: George C Hugg (1895)

1 There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus –
No, not one! no, not one!
None else could heal all our soul’s diseases –
No, not one! no, not one!

Refrain:
Jesus knows all about our struggles,
He will guide till the day is done;
There’s not a friend like the lowly Jesus –
No, not one! no, not one!

2 No friend like hHim is so high and holy –
No, not one! no, not one!
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly –
No, not one! no, not one! [Refrain]

3 There’s not an hour that he is not near us –
No, not one! no, not one!
No night so dark but His love can cheer us –
No, not one! no, not one! [Refrain]

4 Was e’er a gift like the Savior given?
No, not one! no, not one!
Will he refuse us a home in heaven?
No, not one! no, not one! [Refrain]

    This is a slightly different tune than what I am used to and here I was ready to belt it out along with the video. THAT didn’t work (you would have laughed I think). 🙂
