171. Suffering Son of man, be near me

1 Suffering Son of man, be near me,
In my sufferings to sustain;
By Thy sorer griefs to cheer me,
By Thy more than mortal pain.

2 Call to mind that unknown anguish,
In Thy days of flesh below,
When Thy troubled soul did languish
Under a whole world of woe.

3 By Thy most severe temptation
In that dark Satanic hour;
By thy last mysterious Passion,
Screen me from the adverse power.
