Representative Text

1 Sweet is the promise "I will not forget thee."
Nothing can molest or turn my soul away;
E’en tho' the night be dark within the valley,
Just beyond is shining an eternal day.

I will not forget thee or leave thee,
In my hands I’ll hold thee,
In my arms I’ll fold thee,
I will not forget thee or leave thee;
I am thy Redeemer, I will care for thee.

2 Trusting the promise "I will not forget thee,"
Onward will I go with songs of joy and love,
Tho' earth despise me, tho' my friends forsake me,
I shall be remembered in my home above. [Chorus]

3 When at the golden portals I am standing,
All my tribulations, all my sorrows past,
How sweet to hear the blessed proclamation,
"Enter, faithful servant, welcome home at last." [Chorus]
