Two-part (equal) choir and keyboard, based on the composer's own hymn-tune Ribenial. Text by George Matheson.
Lyrical, flowing, beautiful.
O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my tired 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 follows me all my way,
I give 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 seeks me through the 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!
