Lord God The Everliving


Lord God, the Ever-Living,
On whom men’s hopes are set,
Lord God, the Ever-Loving,
Forbid that we forget!

Refrain:
The place where human sorrow
And heaven’s pity met,-
The cross-tree on the mountain
Forbid that we forget!

Forbid that we should ever
Forget a world once lost,
Forget a Christ who rescued,
Forget a rescue’s cost. [Refrain]

Thou who the stars hast numbered,
Who rulest earth and sea,
That Thou hast man remembered
Thy crown of praise shall be! [Refrain]
