O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go


untitled

” . . . with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer” (Isaiah 54:8b).

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.

From O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go by George Matheson, 1882.
