The Lord creates and blesses,
He forgives and redeems
And he knows best what each of us needs.
He appoints and makes known that we are his own
But sometimes, I guess, I forget
My deadline is soon
Someone is coming at noon
My hair is a mess, and I’m broke.
The bill collectors won’t stop
I should really call God up,
But as usual you know….. I forget
When my tasks seem so many
And my burden so heavy
And I am consumed by my pain
When my friends let me down,
And my day causes a frown
I really should know but….. I forget
My boss just doesn’t get it
The doctors all say forget it
And the church should be good, but it’s cold.
The cupboards bare nothing
The house roof needs fixing
It can be alright but…… I forget
I forget someone dear
Who has promised to be near
When the troubles and trials begin
I forget that healer when my pains are a killer
And the sickness threatens to do me in
I forget to be quiet when the world seems so loud
I forget to be strong in my weakness
I forget that to grow, more of God I should know
Like example, I must live in meekness.
When we’re weak he is strong in place of tears there’s a song
And a hand to lift us when we fall
We are told we could call him whenever we need him
He will never forsake us at all.
I must not forget, for he has promised me surely
To be always faithful and true
He has promised his ear, when I need him to hear
All my life’s gains and misfortunes.
So, may I never forget, that he has never failed me yet
And that I can do all things through the Christ
Who gives me wings, and allows me to sing
That all is made perfect in his strength.
