“I will not let thee go.” Gen. 32. 26; Song. 3. 4

C. Wesley                         C.M.

1
Shepherd divine, our wants relieve
In this our evil day;
To all thy tempted followers give
The power to trust and pray.

2
Long as our fiery trials last,
Long as the cross we bear;
O let our souls on thee be cast,
In never-ceasing prayer.

3
Till thou the Father’s love impart,
Till thou thyself bestow,
Be this the cry of every heart,
“I will not let thee go.

4
“I will not let thee go, unless
Thou tell thy name to me;
With all thy great salvation bless,
And say, ‘Christ died for thee.’”
