A Hymn

One of the hymns we used on Sunday - it seemed to scratch where people were itching...

 

Lord Jesus, think of me

and take away my fear;

in my depression, may I be

assured that you are near.

 

Lord Jesus, think of me

by many cares oppressed;

in times of great anxiety

give me your promised rest.

 

Lord Jesus, think of me

when darker grows the day;

and in my sad perplexity

show me the heavenly way.

 

Lord Jesus, think of me

when night's dark shadows spread;

restore my lost serenity,

and show me light ahead.

 

Lord Jesus, think of me,

that when the night is past

I may the glorious morning see

and share your joy at last!
