My One Comfort

For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. – Romans 14:7-9

This Sunday, we will be introducing a new song to our gathering, My One Comfort by Dustin Kensrue, featured on his album The Water & the Blood. My One Comfort is drawn from the first question of the Heidelberg Catechism, which asks, “What is my one comfort in life and death?” The answer is, “That I am not my own, but belong—body and soul, in life and death—to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.” This song is a stirring call to joy and encouragement that Jesus alone is our hope. Here are the lyrics:

My one comfort both in life and death is that I am not my own
I was bought with blood and I confess, I belong to you alone

By the Father’s good decree, Jesus, you’ve delivered me
By your Spirit set me free to follow you

Jesus, you have taken hold of me
And in your grip of grace I’m finally free

You can listen to My One Comfort by watching the video below, and you can purchase and download the full song by clicking here. As we sing, may we be reminded that the sacrifice of Christ is our one and true comfort in this life.
