12. Lest I Forget

If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something
by Rebecca St. James



 

I, I sit in silence here
I’m filled with wonder once again
I’m overwhelmed by Your beautiful love
Now I, I’m falling to my knees, so grateful for the grace You give
The love I need I’ve found in You

Lest I forget
All of Your goodness
The blood You have shed
The cross I now remember
Lest I forget

Lord, You wept tears of blood for me
You hung in agony so deep
Carried my sin away for good
Now I, I take this bread and wine
Remembering Your love divine
You walked through fire to free my soul

(Whispered)
Lord, You wept tears of blood for me
Carried my sin away for good
Walked through the fire to free my soul
I sit in silence here
The cross I now remember
Lest I now forget

Behind the Song:
“This song was inspired at an Easter Service at my church—a church that has wonderful music. This particular Sunday our worship team performed a communion song –and reflecting on that song, I felt led to pray, ‘God please inspire me with a song along these lines.” Shortly thereafter He answered that prayer—with ‘Lest I Forget’. So often we go off on tangents in the Christian life—we major on minor things and forget the central truth that Jesus did die for us and that He rose again and is alive. I think just remembering that sacrifice and what He did every day is so important.

Lest I forget all of your goodness The blood you have shed The cross I now remember Lest I forget.

It’s somewhat of a sobering song but a song of gratefulness that simply treasures what Jesus has done for us.”

The central theme of the album is ‘You are Loved’. Really it’s the central theme of the Christian life. Without the knowledge that we are loved extravagantly by God, we can’t love Him back, we can’t live a holy life, we can’t trust Him. But when we understand that He loves us –so deeply and so passionately—and that He wants us to live this great adventure with Him—then we can understand who He is and love him with all that we are.” - Rebecca St. James
