Franklin Spriggs (December 28,1951 / Portsmouth, Ohio)
God has not forgotten you
Down this highway that we call life,
Of all it's heartaches, toils and strife,
It's hard for the saints to keep pressing through,
But always remember, God has not forgotten you.
Like Israel pursued of Pharaohs hoard,
In fear of life, would they die by the sword,
By his mighty hand he brought them through,
Why have doubt, God has not forgotten you.
Just as Jonah, three nights in a whale,
Praying to his God who cannot fail,
In torment and agony, not knowing what to do,
No need for worry, God has not forgotten you.
Like Daniel in a pit, it looked like a fatal hour,
Thrown to the lions, his body to be devoured,
When all looks hopeless, what ever shall you do,
Pray to the Lord, God has not forgotten you.
For Elijah and the widow, in a terrible drought,
Couldn't find a reason to rejoice or to shout,
But hold on saints, the rains of blessings are coming to you,
Do not doubt, God has not forgotten you.
You are his children, and he loves you so,
Life gets hard you don't know where to go,
Stay on your knees, Jesus will surely bring you through,
Trust in God, he has not forgotten you.
