"This beautiful setting of George Matheson's familiar hymn text functions perfectly in both sacred or secular settings. Here, O Love is given a fresh new melody with equally refreshing and gorgeous harmonies. You will not want to miss this for use as a sacred meditation in a worship service or in a concert setting as a tribute to the glory of love itself. Simply stunning!"
O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in thee;
I give thee back the life I owe,
That in thy ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.
O Joy that seeks 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.
