Forgotten! no; that cannot be - Everlasting remembrance (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Everlasting Remembrance.

"O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me." (Isaiah 44,21)

1. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  all other names may pass away,
but thine, my Israel, shall remain
  in everlasting memory. (PDF - Midi)

2. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  inscribed upon my palms thou art;
the name I gave in days of old
  is graven still upon my heart.

3. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  belovèd of thy God art thou,
his crown for ever on thy head,
  his name for ever on thy brow.

4. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  he who upon thee named his name
assures thee of eternal love,
  a love for evermore the same.

5. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  the oath of him that cannot lie
is on thy city and thy land,
  an oath to all eternity.

6. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  the grace of ages deep and broad
is grace without decay, the grace,
  O Israel, of the Lord thy God.

7. Forgotten! no; that cannot be:
  sun, moon, and stars may cease to shine,
but thou shalt be remembered still,
  for thou art his, and he is thine.
