Jesus remembered you

Representative Text

1 Don’t forget Jesus when long is the way;
Don’t forget Jesus when dark is the day;
Don’t forget Jesus, He’ll bear when you pray.
O don’t, don’t forget Jesus!

Don’t forget Jesus, don’t forget Jesus,
So faithful, so loving and true;
When you were lost in darkness and sin,
Jesus remembered you.

2 Don’t forget Jesus! When tempted to sin,
Trust in His promise—He’ll help you to win;
In all your battles, without and within,
O don’t, don’t forget Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Don’t forget Jesus, for He thought of you
When you had wandered, when you where untrue;
Jesus was faithful the whole journey thro’,
O don’t, don’t forget Jesus! [Refrain]

4 Don’t forget Jesus, but on Him rely!
Time, like a river, is wandering by!
Surely you’ll need Him the hour you must die,
O don’t, don’t forget Jesus! [Refrain]

William C. Poole was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. His parents belonged to the Methodist church. He graduated from Washington College and became a Methodist minister in Wilmington, Delaware area. He was pastor of McCabe Memorial, Richardson Park and other churches. In 1913 he was superintendent of the Anti-Saloon League of Delaware. He wrote about five hundred hymns. The writing was done as recreation and a diversion from his pastoral work. His goal in writing as well as in being a minister was to help people.
