In a "Sending Service" for missionaries or pastors, the soloist may sing " His hands He'll hold thee, with His arms enfold thee....He will care for you." Does anyone know the title or the words to the song?

Hi Ken,

Is this the song you are looking for? ... rget_Thee/
This is written in the first person so not sure

I Will Not Forget Thee

Sweet is the promise “I will not forget thee,”
Nothing can molest or turn my soul away;
E’en though the night be dark within the valley,
Just beyond is shining an eternal day.

I will not forget thee or leave thee;
In My hands I’ll hold thee, in My arms I’ll fold thee;
I will not forget thee or leave thee;
I am thy Redeemer, I will care for thee.

Trusting the promise “I will not forget thee,”
Onward I will go with songs of joy and love,
Though earth despise me, though my friends forsake me,
I shall be remembered in my home above.

When at the golden portals I am standing,
All my tribulations, all my sorrows past,
How sweet to hear the blessed proclamation,
“Enter, faithful servant, welcome home at last.”
