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 your loving servant be,
and taste your promised rest.
3 Lord Jesus, think on me,
nor let me go astray;
through darkness and perplexity
point to the heavenly way.
4 Lord Jesus, think on me,
that when the flood is past
I may th'eternal brightness see
and share your joy at last.
