Lead sheet (piano/vocal chart) for the song “O Love that Will Not Let Me Go” as performed by NAOBC Worship.
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 Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.
O love divine, O love so free!
Your love, O God, has come to me!
My weariness gives way to rest,
And You give life abundantly!
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 light divine, O light so free!
Your light, O God, illumines me!
Blind made to see; night turned to day
As glorious light from heaven streams!
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 joy divine, O joy so free!
Your joy, O God, has lifted me!
Through griefs and trials I am sustained,
Your joy the rock beneath my feet!
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.
O grace divine, O grace so free!
Your grace, O God, awakens me!
My cross I take for Jesus’ sake,
My life in You eternally!
