Latinised Hymns

Lord Jesus, think on me

Lord Jesus, think on me,
And purge away my sin;
From earth-born 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.

W. Chatfield/Bp. Synesius

Memento tu mei,
sontemque puriga;
si quid me turbat, expedi;
sit pura mens mea.

Memento tu mei
curis vexantibus;
sim pacti compos otii
amemque te tuus.

Memento tu mei,
errore ne vager,
et nocte confuso mihi
caeleste des iter.

Memento tu mei,
traiecto flumine
aeternae lucis ut mihi
sit et laetitiae.
