I grew up loving this hymn. The story of its writing makes it all the sweeter to me. But it became sweeter still when I heard this a cappella arrangement by Sam Robson. While I am focusing in 2014 on old hymns to new tunes in my Hymn of the Month posts, I want to share this old hymn with its old tune, sung by a young person. I love watching Sam sing, as if in each track he's taped he is fully aware, not only of the music, but of the meaning of the song as well.
The Lord bless you today as you listen to this amazing rendition of O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go.
