O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

O Love that will not let me go, 
I rest my weary soul in you; 
I give you back the life I owe, 
That in those ocean depths its flow 
May richer, fuller grow. 

O Light that follows all my way, 
I yield my flickering torch to you; 
My heart restores its borrowed ray, 
That in your sunshine’s blaze its day 
May brighter, fairer glow.
