O LOVE THAT

WILL NOT LET ME GO

O Love, that will not let me go, I rest my weary soul in Thee;

I give thee back the life I owe,  that in thine ocean depths its flow

May richer, fuller be, may richer, fuller be.

 

O Light that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to Thee;

My heart restores its borrowed ray, that in Thy sunshine’s glow it’s day

May brighter, fairer be; may brighter, fairer be.

 

O Joy, that seekest me through the pain, I cannot close my heart to thee;

I trace the rainbow through the rain, and feel the promise is not vain 

That morn shall tearless be, that morn shall tearless be.

 

O Cross that liftest up my head, I dare not ask to hide from Thee;

I lay in dust life’s glory dead, and from the ground there blossoms red

Life that shall endless be, life that shall endless be.
