Unrelenting

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.

~George Matheson

 

 

 

 *I’m reading a couple good books and devotionals: the classic Streams In the Desert edited by Mrs. Charles Cowman and Brokeness: The Heart God Revives by Nancy Leigh Demoss. I’m also inspired by my friend Kerrie to post these beautiful prayers and verses each weekend.
