Verse 1:
Lord Jesus, think on me,
and purge away my sin;
from earth-born passions set me free,
and make me pure within.

Verse 2:
Lord Jesus, think on me,
with care and woe oppressed,
let me Your loving servant be,
and taste Your promised rest.

Verse 3:
Lord Jesus, think on me,
nor let me go astray;
through darkness and perplexity
make straight the heav'nly way.

Verse 4:
Lord Jesus, think on me,
that, when the flood is past,
I may eternal brightness see,
and share Your joy at last.
