I am not forgotten
I am not forgotten
I am not forgotten
God knows my name.
He knows my name.

Light over darkness
Strength over weakness
Joy over sadness
He knows my name

Father to the Fatherless
Friend to the friendless
Hope for the hopeless
He knows my name

I will praise You
I will praise You
For I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

I am not forgotten
Never forsaken

    Born into this world 'fatherless', another 'father' adopted me. Years later, he went to live with jesus and i was again, fatherless... But not really, for i am not forgotten, have never been forgotten, by the father of the fatherless... The father of all mankind. My abba. My daddy. He always remembers me.

    This song just reminds us that what ever we are going through god has not forgotten us. So we need to continue to praise him. We will overcome anything because we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

    No matter what you are going through, god will never leave nor forsake you. He will not give you more than you can bear
