Lord Jesus, think on me (St Paul’s)

Hymn -- Lord Jesus, think on me -- Lyrics

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

Lord Jesus, think on me,
with care and woe opprest;
let me thy loving servant be,
and taste thy promised rest.

Lord Jesus, think on me
amid the battle’s strife;
in all my pain and misery
be thou my health and life.

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

Lord Jesus, think on me,
when flows the tempest high:
when on doth rush the enemy,
O Saviour, be thou nigh.

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