798. Lord Jesus, think on me

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,
nor let me go astray;
through darkness and perplexity
point thou the heav’nly way.

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