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 many a care opprest;
let me thy loving servant be,
and taste thy promised rest.

Lord Jesus, think on me,
nor let me go astray;
through darkness and perplexity
point thou the heavenly way.

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

Lyrics: Synesius of Cyrene, circa 430 (Μνώεο Χριστέ),
translated from Greek to English by Allen W. Chatfield,
Songs and Hymns of Earliest Greek Christian Poets, 1876.
