O Wondrous Love

I've recently passed through the worst (I hope!) of a personal storm, and a couple songs have been--still are!--a perfect comfort & encouragement. I've highlighted words and/or phrases that particularly bless me.

O Wondrous Love
O wondrous love that will not let me go!
I cling to you with all my strength and soul.
Yet if my hold should ever fail,
This wondrous love will never let me go.

O wondrous love that's come to dwell in me!
Lord, who am I, that I should come to know
Your tender voice assuring me?
This wondrous love will never let me go.

I'm resting in the everlasting arms,
In the ever faithful heart, the Shepherd of my life.
You'll carry me on Your mighty wings of grace,
Keeping me until the day I look into Your eyes.

O wondrous love that sings of Calvary.
The sweetest sound this sinner's ever known!
The song of your redeeming Son
Whose wondrous love will never let me go.

O wondrous love that rushes over me!
I can't escape this river's glorious flow!
You overwhelm my days with good.
Your wondrous love will never let me go.
