O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

C G7 O love that will not let me go G I rest my weary soul in Thee; E Am I give Thee back the life I owe, D7 G That in Thine ocean depths its flow C G7 C G7 C 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 lifteth up my head, I dare not ask to fly from Thee; I trace the rainbow through the rain, And feel the promise is not vain That morn shall tearless be. O cross that lifteth 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.
