Hymn/Song Information

Forsaken once and thrice denied




Forsaken once,
and thrice denied,
The risen Lord gave pardon free,
Stood once again at Peter’s side,
And asked him, “Lov’st thou Me?”


How many times
with faithless word
Have we denied His holy Name,
How oft forsaken our dear Lord,
And shrunk when trial came?


Saint Peter, when
the cock crew clear,
Went out, and wept
his broken faith;
Strong as a rock
through strife and fear,
He served his Lord till death.


How oft his cowardice of heart
We have without his love sincere,
The sin without the sorrow’s smart,
The shame without the tear!


O oft forsaken, oft denied,
Forgive our shame,
wash out our sin;
Look on us from Thy Father’s side
And let that sweet look win.


Hear when we call Thee
from the deep,
Still walk beside us on the shore,
Give hands to work,
and eyes to weep,
And hearts to love Thee more.
