Forget Not – a song about peace and acceptance from God, our Father

Forget Not

Intro:

God’s love is a love that, if seen & felt & experienced, we have no other option but to reciprocate. No other choice but to surrender. And when life hits us hard, we must choose to think about every thing, big & small, he has done for us. And every promise in his Word- for if we’re His children, we can stand on those unwavering promises.

As I write this, the image of trust that comes to my mind is when you put all of your body weight on someone else. When I was dating my husband & we were both 20, we were walking in a field of yellow, waist- high grass. He suggested this game we play, where he stood behind me and told me when to fall backwards. He’d have to distance himself right, and I’d have to trust that I’d fall perfectly into his strong arms. Well, I trusted him, & to this day I don’t remember what went wrong, but one thing i do recall clearly, is that fear-drenched second when I realized he stood too far back…& then ~ s m a c k ~ my butt cleared the grass & landed on some deceitfully hard ground. He felt pretty bad for bruising my tail bone. But that’s typical of what can happen when we trust man, or ourselves. When disappointment hits, the only sure thing we have is God’s love.

Inspirations:

Is. 62:4 ~ Your new name will be “the City of God’s Delight” and the Bride of God, for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his own.

Zephania 3:17 ~ The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Psalm 103:2-5 ~ Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits-who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

I will forget not all of thy benefits

I will forget not all of thy benefit

I will forget not just how much you love me

I will forget not...how you delight in me

(Key change, building…)

I know you delight in me

(And I) hear you sing over me

(Abba Father)... you delight in me

I hear you sing over me (I’m your child)

I know you delight in me

I hear you sing over me

(Abba Father)... you delight in me

I hear you sing over me (I’m your child)

(Key change, building…)

Know that I delight in you, too

Receive my praises to your throne (x3)

Know that I delight in you

Rec’v my praises

::

(Repeat Verse 1 ... basic acoustic, slower)


How you delight in me

Optional adlib vamp:

You still delight in me; after all I’ve done

You still delight in me; in spite of my self image

You still delight in me; in spite of how others view me

You still delight in me; your love is proven over & over again
