Nothing between my soul and the Savior

1
Nothing between my soul and the Savior,
Naught of this world’s delusive dream;
I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.
  Nothing between my soul and the Savior,
So that His blessed face may be seen;
Nothing preventing the least of His favor,
  Keep the way clear! Let nothing between.
2
Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
Habits of life, though harmless they seem,
Must not my heart from Him e’er sever;
He is my all, there’s nothing between.
3
Nothing between, like pride or station;
Self-life or friends shall not intervene;
Though it may cost me much tribulation,
I am resolved; there’s nothing between.
4
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, with nothing between.

Charles Albert Tinley was born in Maryland July 7th 1851. His father Chester was a slave and his mother Hester was free. Hester died when Charles was very young; he was taken in by his mother’s sister Caroline Robbins in order to keep his freedom. In his Book of Sermons he speaks of behind “hired out wherever father could place me” it seems he was expected to work for the family.

Charles married Daisy Henry when he was seventeen. They had eight children. Some whom later assisted him in publishing his hymns. Tindley educated himself. After he and Daisy moved to Philadelphia in 1875, he took correspondence courses towards becoming a Methodist minister while working as a grounds keeper. In 1902, he became a pastor at East Bainsbridge and the church grew rapidly. Then in 1924, he became a minister at the Tindley Temple where membership grew to ten thousand. He was known for his captivating preacher drawing multiple races to hear him speak.

His songs were published in A book called Soul Echoes and New Songs of Paradise. The songs were an outgrowth of his preaching ministry.

His wife Daisy died in 1924 and in 1927 he remarried Jenny Cotton. Tindley died July 26, 1933.

Such a beautiful old hymn. I remember years ago when my aunt and I used to sing this song during our devotion and the Holy Spirit dropped it in my spirit. There are so many worldly distractions that can come between my soul and the Savior but with God's Grace He will help with much denial and self preservation the Holy Ghost. Churches need to get back to these songs and stop playing those jumping up entertainment music that don't profit the soul but only satisfy the flesh.

What a great old hymn! How I am blessed by its message. Oh that every believer, myself included, could honestly say "there is nothing between my soul and my Savior." We need to do sing this hymn more often.

That's the most beautiful testimony a dying soul can have when they're leaving this sinful world.
