Remember Me

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Thou art the sinner's friend,
As such I look to Thee.
Now in the depths of Thy great love,
O Lord, remember me.

2 Remember Thy pure word of grace,
Remember Calvary,
Remember all Thy dying groans,
And then remember me.

3 Thou wondrous advocate with God,
I yield myself to Thee.
While Thou art sitting on Thy throne,
O Lord, remember me.

4 I own I'm guilty, own I'm vile,
Yet Thy salvation's free.
Then, in Thy all abounding grace,
O Lord, remember me.

5 Howe'er forsaken or distressed,
Howe'er oppressed I be,
Howe'er afflicted here on earth,
Do Thou remember me.
