1 Lord Jesus, think on me,
and purge away my sin;
from earthborn passions set me free,
and make me pure within.

2 Lord Jesus, think on me,
with care and woe oppressed;
let me thy loving servant be,
and taste thy promised rest.

3 Lord Jesus, think on me,
amid the battle's strife;
in all my pain and misery
be thou my health and life.

4 Lord Jesus, think on me,
nor let me go astray;
through darkness and perplexity
point thou the heavenly way.

5 Lord Jesus, think on me,
when flows the tempest high:
when on doth rush the enemy
O Saviour, be thou nigh.

6 Lord Jesus, think on me,
that when the flood is past,
I may the eternal brightness see,
and share thy joy at last.
