324. Lord Jesus, Think on Me

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 oppressed;
Let me Thy loving servant be,
And taste Thy promised rest.

3 Lord Jesus, think on me
Nor let me go astray;
Through darkness and perplexity
Point Thou the heav'nly way.

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

Amen.
