Hast Thou Forgotten?

 A poem I wrote describing how I felt and the encouragement I needed and received on more than one occasion.

Hast thou forgotten, oh hast thou forgotten?
There is a promise for whom Christ died.
'Tis written in the Book, 'tis writ with iron pen.
"My yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Why dost thou forget, oh why dost thou forget?
 The promise is for you, just look and see!
Do not despair for He hath said,
"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

How dost thou forget, oh how dost thou forget?
Canst thou not hear the promise as it rings.
It's rung through ages past and assuredly lives yet,
"He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins."

Do not forget, oh do not forget!
The promises are from God and are for you.
"Seek first the kingdom of God and all His righteousness;
And all these things shall be added unto you."

Who is it, oh Who is it that thou forgettest?
Recall thy God and sing before Jesus' face, for
"Thou wast predestined to a child by Christ,
To the praise and glory of His grace."

Remember, oh you must remember!
Dwell upon the promises and thou shalt be no worse.
Among the glorious promises, this is one of the number,
"Whoso drinketh of My water shall not thirst."

Awake! Awake my soul and sing to thy Beloved!
Recall that on which thou once relied.
Awake thy slumbering eyes and get off thy bed,
For thou hast in thy agony far too long sighed.

Remember how great the fire that once burned in thee.
Remember the times when thou wast first saved and baptized.
Remember the days when thou wouldst boldly say,
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?"

Oh Remember! Remember!
