1 O thou, my soul, forget no more,
The Friend who all thy sorrows bore,
Let every idol be forgot;
But, O my soul, forget him not.
2 Renounce thy works and ways, with grief,
And fly to this divine relief;
Nor him forget, who left his throne,
And for thy life gave up his own.
3 Eternal truth and mercy shine
In him, and he himself is thine:
And canst thou, then, with sin beset,
Such charms, such matchless charms forget?
4 Oh, no: till life itself depart,
His name shall cheer and warm my heart;
And, lisping this, from earth I’ll rise,
And join the chorus of the skies.
O thou, My Soul, Forget No More Lyrics
