Title: A Beautiful Hymn
Post by: AutumnRose on March 09, 2010, 05:06:30 AM
...which I discovered listening to a religious programme on BBC Radio 2 on Sunday.

Lord Jesus, Think on Me
(click the link for Youtube video :) )

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.

Sy­ne­si­us of Cy­rene, cir­ca 430

Beautiful, beautiful - that choir is wonderful. Just as a choir should be and in a great church also!

Sweet.  :D

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


It makes me think of Christ asleep in the boat!
