1. Sweet is the promise “I will not forget thee,”

Nothing can molest or turn my soul away;

E’en though 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. How can I show my gratitude to Jesus,

For His love unfailing and His tender care?

I will proclaim to others His salvation,

That they may accept Him and His promise share.

3. Trusting the promise “I will not forget thee,”

Onward will I go with songs of joy and praise;

Tho’ earth despise me, tho’ my friends forsake me,

Jesus will be near m e gladdening my days.

4. When at the golden portals I am standing,

All my tribulation, all my sorrows past,

How sweet to hear the blessed proclamation:

“Enter, faithful servant, welcome home at last!”

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
