Forsake Me Not

    “Forsake Me Not,” New Era, Aug. 1995, 51

    Forsake Me Not

    First-Place Hymn

    1. Forsake me not; be not far from me,

    though like a lamb I’ve gone astray.

    Lord, wilt thou put thy arms around me

    and lead me back with thee to stay?

    2. Forsake me not; be not far from me

    when sorrows press upon my soul.

    Lord, grant me strength and understanding.

    Lift up my heart and make me whole.

    3. Father, I know that thou art with me.

    I have no reason, then, to fear.

    Thy loving answer reassures me,

    “My child, I always will be near.”
