What a kind Friend I have who brings me comfort in the sweetest sweetest of ways!

This morning I woke up with a tune in my head, and I couldn't remember the words bar the first one! O! What a lovely surprise I got when I found it in my hymn book and how the first two lines enveloped me in comfort! What a kind Friend I have who brings me comfort in the sweetest, sweetest of ways!

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 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.
