Lord Jesus Think On Me

Synesius of Cyrene, 430

Verse 1
Lord Jesus, think on me,
And purge away my sin;
From earthborn passions set me free
And make me pure within.

Verse 2
Lord Jesus, think on me,
With many a care oppressed;
Let me Thy loving servant be
And taste Thy promised rest.

Verse 3
Lord Jesus, think on me
Amid the battle’s strife;
In all my pain and misery
Be Thou my Health and Life.

Verse 4
Lord Jesus, think on me
Nor let me go astray;
Through darkness and perplexity
Point Thou the heavenly way.

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

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

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