1 Have you lost the name of Jesus from your life,
As you walked along amid the toil and strife?
Have you given up your faithful Friend and Guide,
Who has loved you more than all on earth beside?
Have you lost His name? precious, holy name
As you walked ‘mid the toil and strife?
Have you lost His name, blessed, holy name,
Have you lost the name of Jesus from your life?
2 Who will help you when the storms of trouble fall,
When no tender voice gives answer to your call,
When your burden’d heart seems heavy and distressed,
With no Saviour near to give you peace and rest? [Refrain]
3 Have you lost the name of Jesus from your life,
Are you all alone amid the din and strife?
From the world and its allurements turn away,
Seek the Christ you’ve lost, ere dawns another day. [Refrain]
Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
