Oh Love That Will Not Let me Go

I adore this old hymn, which never fails to stir my heart whenever I hear it sung.

Oh love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee,
I give the back the life I owe,
That in thine ocean’s depth its flow,
Shall richer, fuller be.

Oh love 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 flame,
May brighter, clearer be.

Oh love that seekest me through pain,
I can not close my heart to thee,
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.
