Author: George Matheson, 1842-1906 Hymnal: African Methodist Episcopal Church Hymnal #302 (2011) Meter: 184.108.40.206.6 Hymnal Title: African Methodist Episcopal Church Hymnal Lyrics: 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 through 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.
Amen. Topics: The Christian Life Dedication and Consecration; Cross; Inner Life; Jesus Abiding with Believers; Love Scripture: Jeremiah 31:3 Languages: English Tune Title: ST. MARGARET
