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,
By anxious thoughts oppressed;
Let me Your loving servant be
And taste Your promised rest.
3 Lord Jesus, think on me
Amid the battle's strife;
In all my pain and misery
O be my health and life.
4 Lord Jesus, think on me
Nor let me go astray;
Through darkness and perplexity
Point out Your chosen way.
5 Lord Jesus, think on me
That, when this life is past,
I may th'eternal brightness see
And share Your joy at last.
