 But the Lord will never forget us

 Drawing near to our home day by day

 The great judge will come

 The world will tremble

 There will be no excuse on that day.

 Whatever now may betideth thee

 When there’s no more hope then

 His help will come

 Our Lord Jesus is a wonderful King.

 

Amen.
