    Oh love that will not let me go, sounds perhaps like a refrain from a popular rock song or country ballad. Actually it is the opening line of a hymn of the same name written by George Matheson on the evening of June 6 1882. Almost completely blind by the age of 17, George nevertheless completed a Masters degree at the University of Glasgow and became a parish minister. He had been engaged to be married, but as his eyesight failed completely, the love of his life told him she did not think she could deal with it anymore and broke off their engagement.
