He Never Has Forgotten Me

Representative Text

1 There is One who rules in heaven and in all the earth below,
But He never has forgotten me;
Millions look to Him for sustenance wherever they may go,
But He never has forgotten me.

Refrain:
He never has forgotten me,
Tho’ unworthy and small I may be;
He is King of all the universe
And all who therein dwell;
But He never has forgotten me.

2 Countless million angels stand around His great and awful throne,
But He never has forgotten me;
And the ransomed sing their praises evermore to Him alone,
But He never has forgotten me. [Refrain]

3 He has made the countless stars in yonder firmament above,
But He never has forgotten me;
All the human race is sheltered by the curtains of His love,
But He never has forgotten me. [Refrain]
