there is love that wilt not let me go

MHB 448
1.LOVE that wilt not let me go,
I rest my weary soul In Thee :
1 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 nickering 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 Uftest 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.
1.O LOVE, who formedst me to wear
The Image of Thy Godhead here;
Who soughtest me with tender care
Through all my wanderings wild and drear :
O Love, 1 oive myself to Thee,
Thine  ever,  only   Thine  to  be.

2. O Love, of whom Is truth and light,
The  Word and Spirit, life and power,
Whose heart was bared to them that smite,
To shield us in our trial hour:

3. 0 Love, who thus hast bound me fast,
Beneath that gentle yoke of Thine;
Love, who hast conquered me at last,
And   rapt  away  this   heart  of mine :

4. O Love, who once shalt bid me rise
From out this dying life of ours;
0 Love, who once above yon skies
Shalt  set  me  In  the   fadeless bowers:
