My Lord will not forget.

(to the tune of “Rabby la yansany”)

When all my burdens tire me,

When through great woes I cannot see,

When my heart sleeps not soundly,

My Lord will not forget me.

 

Chorus:

My Lord will not forget me,

My Lord will not forget me,

He Who knoweth all my needs:

My Lord, will not forget me.

 

If father and mother turn on me,

Or sister and brother despise me,

Yet will I still wait on Thee,

My Lord will not forget me.

 

Though against me should rise my foe,

With a great host: row by row,

Yet no fear will I show,

My Lord will not forget me.

 

If I am jailed for my cross

Or if for it, I suffer loss,

Yet that current will I cross,

My Lord will not forget me.

 

When temptations are too great to bear,

And from their grip I begin to wear,

Yet at Thy image will I stare,

My Lord will not forget me.

 

If He Himself has suffered shame,

If He, innocent, took our blame,

We who are called by His Name,/ What excuse, then, can we claim?

How can we forget Him?

 

 

How can we forget Him?

How can we forget Him?

He Who inscribed us in His hand,

How can we forget Him?
