When We Remember...a Hallelujah Hymn

When we remember that He remembers no more
Hope soars like an eagle to heights before unknown
Faith finds The Focal-point worth fighting for
And sets its sight beyond earth’s flight of stone

When we remember that He remembers naught
That, as far as east is from the west He flings
The sordid details of remorse at redemption besought
And He only remembers forgiving us; Hope sings

It is not for nothing that we press toward a shore
Beyond the death where debt would damn the dead
Then we remember (because of Jesus) He remembers our sin no more
Hope weeps for joy and marches, hallelujah, straight ahead

 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, 
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him. 
Just as a father has compassion on his children, 
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.…
Psalm 103:11-13
