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.”
