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!”
