I’ve Not Forsaken You

I’ve not forsaken you – I’ve not forgotten you –
I’ve not abandoned you, Or those you love.
I know the tears you cry; The whispered question “why?”
I hear your every sigh, From here above.

Even in the face of seeming disaster;
Even when all hope seems to fail;
Even when the fist of the world strikes hard,
Know, my child, that all is well.

I know it’s hard to see, Through thick adversity;
Hold on and trust in me, And you will not fall.
I hold you in my hand; Upon my rock you stand;
And there’s so much I’ve planned, To see you through it all.

So even in the face of seeming disaster;
Even when your strength seems to fail;
Even when the fury of hell strikes hard,
Know, my child, that all is well.

I’ve not forsaken you; I’ve not abandoned you;
For I have taken you Into my very heart.
The tears you cry today Will be tears of joy someday;
And all along the way, That promised joy will start,

If you remember….
I’ve not forsaken you;
I will stand by you;
I’m here to comfort you…

I’ve not forsaken you.
