Nicolae Moldoveanu

I will not forget

Nicolae Moldoveanu is one of Romania’s most prolific hymn writers. More than 300 of his 6,000 hymns* were written during his detention in Communist prisons for his Christian faith. Richard Wurmbrand, one of Nicolae’s fellow prisoners, praised him as one of the greatest saints he met in prison. This song is featured in the 2018 film Tortured for Christ.  

Nicolae Moldoveanu Prison Song
‘N-am Sa Uit’ I Will Not Forget
(Translated by Keith & Kristyn Getty and Fionan de Barra)

Jesus, Lord, O help me always to remember
How your miracle delivered me from pain
How your love has freed my captive heart forever
By your grace you’ve always been my one defender
I was dead and then you gave me life again
Yes, you gave me life again

And I won’t forget the torment and the sadness
I was helpless so I called upon your name
And you answered me with mercy’s tender kindness
Shone your hope to take away my sorrow’s darkness
And the light upon your face now shines on me
Yes, forever shines on me

Now my soul will sing of your eternal spring time
No more clouds and no more sorrows in my heart
With the sacrifice of praise I kneel before you
With the prayer of thankfulness I will adore you
Jesus, Lord, you are the treasure of my life
Yes, the treasure of my life
