If you remember me…

Remember the Lord your God.
(Deuteronomy 8:18; NLT).


1. If you remember me,
Do as I bid:
Loving your neighbours,
Just as I did.

2. If you believe in me,
Strive to do good:
Loving each stranger,
Just as I would.

3. If you depend on me,
Help others, too:
Loving each foreigner,
Just as I do.

4. No matter what happens,
Hold fast to me, still:
Loving your enemies –
Just as I will.

I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one.’
I will say to those called ‘Not my people,’ ‘You are my people’;
and they will say, ‘You are my God.’
(Hosea 2:23; NIV).
