Representative Text

1 Friends and lov’d ones may leave us,
Foes may painfully grieve us,
Death may sorely bereave us,
But Jesus will love us still.

Jesus will never forget me,
No! never forget me;
Never, no never forget me,
Jesus will love me still!

2 When I’m tried by temptation,
Reft of all consolation,
And in great tribulation,
My Jesus will love me still. [Chorus]

3 When my feet are aweary,
When my eyes are all teary,
When life’s pathway is dreary,
My Jesus will love me still. [Chorus]
