O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go

Posted in hymn, song lyrics tagged , at 5:00 am by blync77

O Love that wilt 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.
 
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 blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.
 
O Joy that seekest me through 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.
 
O Cross that liftest up my head.
I dare not ask to fly from Thee;
I lay in dust life’s glory dead,
And from the ground there blossoms red,
Life that shall endless be.
 
George Matheson, 1842-1906
