You will not let me go...


Today, I am sifting through a cornucopia of emotions, one of them being sadness.  There is a family in my church who lost their son Monday and my heart cries out to God on their behalf.  To those who knew him and are grieving his loss, I have no words.  I can only look to my Savior and know without a doubt He will prevail.
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 yeild my flickering torch to Thee,
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in Thy sunshine's glow 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 in vain,
          That morn shall tearless be.

O Cross 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.

(excerpt from Streams in The Desert, hymn written by George Matheson)

My thoughts on the election will come another day once I figure them all out but, today, there is this.
