Lord Jesus, Think On Me

music-notesAnother hymn for you, the words to this one are from Sy­ne­si­us of Cy­rene, cir­ca 430 (Μνώεο Χριστέ); trans­lat­ed from Greek to Eng­lish by Al­len W. Chat­field.

I use these hymns as an example for prayer and reflection, as well as something nice to listen to – they are not just added here as “filler” posts. The lyrics are underneath the YouTube video. The song is sung by the Choir of Kings College, Cambridge, although the “video” part seems just to be of someone’s screen where they were listening to BBC Radio 3! Sorry about that!:

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 oppressed;
Let me Thy loving servant be
And taste 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
Nor let me go astray;
Through darkness and perplexity
Point Thou the heavenly way.

Lord Jesus, think on me
When floods the tempest high;
When on doth rush the enemy,
O Savior, be Thou nigh!

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

Lord Jesus, think on me
That I may sing above
To Father, Spirit, and to Thee
The strains of praise and love.
