No Not One — A Classic Hymn In a Modern Style

“No Not One” describes Jesus as a friend to believers. He is that, as he himself said to disciples when he told them, “henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15:15)

No Not One

Johnson Oatman, Jr. & George C. Hugg

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

Chorus:

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

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

CHORUS

Did ever saint find this friend forsake him; no not one, no not one
Or sinner find that he would not take him; no not one, no not one

CHORUS 2xs
