Lord Jesus Think On Me : Lyrics
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,
with care and woe opprest;
let me thy loving servant be,
and taste thy promised rest.
3. Lord Jesus, think on me
amid the battle’s strife;
in all my pain and misery
be thou my health and life.
4. Lord Jesus, think on me,
nor let me go astray;
through darkness and perplexity
point thou the heav’nly way.
5. Lord Jesus, think on me,
when flows the tempest high:
when on doth rush the enemy,
O Saviour, be thou nigh.
6. Lord Jesus, think on me,
that, when the flood is past,
I may th’eternal brightness see,
and share thy joy at last.
