Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

2300. He'll Never Forget to Keep Me

1. My Father has many dear children;
Will He ever forget to keep me?
He gave His own Son to redeem them,
And He cannot forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He gave His own Son to redeem me,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.

2. Our Father remembers the sparrows,
Their value and fall doth He see;
But dearer to Him are His children,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
But dearer to Him are His children,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.

3. The words of the Lord are so priceless,
How patient and watchful is He;
Though mother forget her own offspring,
Yet He’ll never forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
Though mother forget her own offspring,
Yet He’ll never forget to keep me.

4. I now will abide in His shadow,
Never restless nor fearful will be;
In the secret of His presence He’ll hide me,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
He’ll never forget to keep me (keep me),
In the secret of His presence He’ll hide me,
And He’ll never forget to keep me.

5. O brother, why don’t you accept Him?
He offers salvation so free;
Repent and believe and obey Him,
And He’ll never forget to keep thee.
He’ll never forget to keep thee (keep thee),
He’ll never forget to keep thee (keep thee),
Repent and believe and obey Him,
And He’ll never forget to keep thee.
