Original words sung to the tune of "Rise Up, O Saints of God!"; Hymn 383 in LBW.
1 Do not forget your God as you live out your days.
You are poor as the poorest soul when you deny God praise.
2 Do not forget your God when you think riches best,
for even when you think you’re poor you’ll find that you are blessed.
3 Do not forget your God when you have lost your friends.
For God above came low to you—the means of all our ends.
4 Do not forget your God when all speak well of you.
You don’t deserve a blessed thing; (if only people knew!)
5 Do not forget your God, who gave his life away.
You too must learn to act like Christ or risk going astray.
