1 Lord Jesus, think on me,
and purge away my sin.
From earth-born passions set me free,
and make me pure within.

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

3 Lord Jesus, think on me,
nor let me go astray.
Through darkness and perplexity
point thou the heavenly way.

4 Lord Jesus, think on me,
that, when this life is past,
I may the_eternal brightness see,
and share thy joy at last.

Text Information:
