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.”
