Nothing Between (Hymn)

Nothing Between
Charles A. Tindley (1905)

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.

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.

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.

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.

It is a wonderful time in the life of a Christian when he or she can sing this song with a pure heart.  “Nothing between my soul and my Savior.”  There are so many things that can come between us.  As the song says, even “Habits of life, though harmless they seem.”  We have to be on constant guard for things that would separate us from fellowship with Him and this song is a good reminder of that and of the sweet fellowship that can take place when there truly is “nothing between.”
