O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go

The United Methodist Hymnal Number 480
Text: George Matheson, 1842-1906
Music: Albert L. Peace, 1844-1912
Tune: ST. MARGARET, Meter: 88.886

1.	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.

2.	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.

3.	O Joy that seekest me through pain,
	I cannot close my heart to thee;
	I trace the rainbow thru the rain,
	and feel the promise is not vain,
	that morn shall tearless be.

4.	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.
