He will not forsake you
Whose glories shine afar;
He who feeds the raven,
And numbers ev’ry star,
Will not let His children
One hour forgotten be;
Trust the heav’nly Father,
Trust Him who cares for thee.

He will not forsake you,
The children of the King,
Made in His own likeness,
His saving grace to sing;
Bought with blood so precious,
Redeemed at such a cost,
He will not forget you,
His word cannot be lost.

He will not forsake you;
Oh let the message ring,
Bright or stormy weather
’Twill hope and gladness bring;
Let us sweetly trust Him,
Rejoicing in His love,
Till we better praise Him
In that bright home above.


Trust Him, trust Him,
Whatever may betide;
He who clothes the lilies
Is ever at your side;
Trust Him, trust Him
Whose glories shine afar;
He will not forsake you
Who numbers ev’ry star.
                E. E. Hewitt were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot....I Peter 1:18-19

What a howling wilderness is this world without our Lord!  If once He hideth Himself from us, withered are the flowers of our garden; our pleasant fruits decay; the birds suspend their songs, and a tempest overturns our hopes.  All earth’s candles cannot make daylight if the Sun of Righteousness be eclipsed.  He is the soul of our soul, the light of our light, the life of our life.  Dear reader, what wouldst thou do in the world without Him, in the midst of its temptations and its cares?  What wouldst thou do in the morning without Him, when thou wakest up and lookest forward to the day’s battle?  What wouldst thou do at night, when thou comest home jaded and weary, if there were no door of fellowship between thee and Christ?  Blessed be His name, He will not suffer us to try our lot without Him, for Jesus never forsakes His own.  Yet, let the thought of what life would be without Him, enhance His preciousness.
