We Are Not Forgotten

We are not forgotten
Tossed upon time’s shores
Nor beggars of mercy
That God’s grace out-pours

We are not forsaken
Left to fend in vain
Vessels with no Captain
Nay, God holds the rein

We are not defeated
Born simply to die
Fear has no dominion
Over you and I

…if we have repented
If we have believed
If we, by the grace of God
Have His gift received

God knows every soul-cup
God loves everyone
But we are all lost sinners
Without His dear Son

…without His salvation
Free to one and all
No one is forgotten
Have you heard Him call?

... so that in the ages to come 
He might show the surpassing riches of His grace 
in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.  
For by grace you have been saved through faith; 
and that not of yourselves, 
it is the gift of God; 
not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.…

 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, 
and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, 
of both joints and marrow, 
and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. 
Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

A wonderful worship song here 
and here
