224. Oh That We Never Might Forget

6-8s.

Oh that we never might forget
 
What Christ has suffered for our sake,
 
To save our souls and make us meet
 
Of all His glories to partake;
 
But keeping this in mind, press on
 
To glory and the victor's crown.
1 Corinthians 11:24-25; Hebrews 13:12; 1 Peter 2:21; 1 Peter 4:1; Colossians 1:12; Philippians 3:14

But, gracious Lord, when we reflect
 
How apt to turn the eye from Thee,
 
Forget Thee, too, with sad neglect,
 
And listen to the enemy,
 
And yet to find Thee still the same—
 
'Tis this that humbles us with shame.

Astonished at Thy feet we fall,
 
Thy love exceeds our highest thought,
 
Henceforth be Thou our all in all,
 
Thou who our souls with blood hast bought;
 
May we henceforth more faithful prove,
 
And ne'er forget Thy ceaseless love.
