A HYMN FOR TODAY – Lord Jesus, Think On Me

A HYMN FOR TODAY

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

Lord Jesus, think on me,
With care and woe oppressed;
Let me Thy loving servant be
And gain Thy promised rest.

Lord Jesus, think on me
Amid the battle’s strife;
In all my pain and misery
Be Thou my health and life.

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

SM (6.6.8.6) – Synesius of Cyrene, 410
Trans. Allen W. Chatfield, 1876

Tune: SOUTHWELL – Damon’s Psalter, 1579
