Representative Text

1 How sweet is the tho’t that when trials betide,
When thorns have the way o’ergrown,
The blessed Redeemer is still at our side;
He never forgets His own.

He never forgets His own;
We never are left alone;
He stays at our side to cheer and to guide;
He never forgets His own.

2 He keeps us in mind ev’ry hour of the day,
And ever His love is shown;
To shield us from harm in the dangerous way,
He never forgets His own. [Refrain]

3 The world may forget us, our dear ones may, too,
Or show us but hearts of stone;
But He will be with us the journey all thro’;
He never forgets His own. [Refrain]
