O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go

O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go
words by George Matheson

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.

***

“I trust in Your unfailing love.” Psalm 13:5

I've not heard this song in a long time, and it brings back sweet memories of a church we attended while living in Florida. A nice treat this windy, cold Sunday afternoon! God Bless!
