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 glow, 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 Love that liftest up my head, I dare not ask to hide from Thee
I lay in dust life's glory, dead,
and from the ground there blossoms red, life that shall endless be.

In the original version, verse 4 starts with "O Cross".
