4509. Never Forget

1. Never forget that the Savior is near,
Asking if thou wilt receive Him.
He will protect from all danger and fear
Those who love, trust and believe Him.
Never forget that the Master is near,
All of thy life He is viewing;
How doth the record before Him appear,
Art thou His precepts pursuing?

Never forget, never forget,
Jesus is near, O receive Him.
He will come in, cleanse from all sin;
Cheerfully trust and believe Him.

2. Never forget the good Shepherd is near,
Faithfully leading and guiding,
Turn not away, lest His voice thou shalt hear,
Tenderly pleading and chiding.
Never forget the Redeemer is near,
Nor the dear ransom once given.
If we obey, love, and honor Him here,
We shall dwell with Him in Heaven. [Refrain]
