[Mind-boggling!]

I swear, I'm about to lose my mind. I've been wrestling and grappling for two days trying to remember a song we sang in CCF. The thing is, I can't remember more than two words in a row, yet I've got the melody ringing in my mind. I know I love this song, and I know it's a hymn. Part of the song, I'm fairly certain, is some variation of, "shall sweeter, purer be" or "shall richer, sweeter be" or something to that effect. I've done lyric searches until I've started to pull my hair out, and I haven't found it yet. If I were to see the freakin' lyrics, I would know them.

Maybe Kelsie could help me... I know she and Katie led worship with this song more than once.

To be continued with the lyrics someday... I hope.

EDIT: Kelsie is awesome. "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go," with the chorus, "You're all I want, all I need, everything, Lord, everything."

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

You're all I want
All I need
Everything, Lord everything (2x)

O Light that followest all my way
I yield my flickering torch to thee
My heart restores its borrowed ray
That in thine sunshine's blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be

You're all I want
All I need
Everything, Lord everything (2x)

O Joy that seeks me through my pain
I cannot close my heart to thee
I trace the rainbow thru the rain
And feel the promise is not in vain,
Morn shall tearless be

You're all I want
All I need
Everything, Lord everything (2x)

O Cross that liftest up my head
I dare not ask to fly from thee
I lay in dust life's glory dead
Where from the ground there blossoms red;
Life shall endless be


By the way, to hear the melody as I know it (sans chorus): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEeJx67Egwo#

Check it out. I love it.
