Sunday Blessings

26 February 2012

{painting by Daniel Ridgeway Knight}

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.

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 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.

— "O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go" by George Matheson

I pray you each had a blessed Sabbath, ladies!

"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God." — 1 John 4:7

  6. Beautiful poem, Lizzy. Reminds me of Psalm 139...a psalm I have been meditating on a lot this week. We really do serve a precious Savior.

    Love you,
