Lord Jesus Think On Me

Lord Jesus, think on me,

and purge away my sin;

from earthbound passions set me free,

and make me pure within.

Lord Jesus, think on me

by care and woe oppressed;

let me your loving servant be,

and taste your promised rest.

Lord Jesus, think on me,

amid the bitter strife;

through all my pain and misery

become my health and life.

Lord Jesus, think on me,

that, when the trial is past,

I may your radiant glory see,

and share your joy at last.


– Synesius of Cyrene, (373-414AD)
