        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 many a care 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 heavenly way.

        5. Lord Jesus, think on me
        When floods the tempest high;
        When on doth rush the enemy,
        O Savior, be Thou nigh!

        6. Lord Jesus, think on me
        That, when the flood is past,
        I may the eternal brightness see
        And share Thy joy at last.

        7. Lord Jesus, think on me
        That I may sing above
        To Father, Spirit, and to Thee
        The strains of praise and love.
