Jesus, Thou art the sin­ner’s friend;
As such I look to Thee;
Now, in the full­ness of Thy love,
O Lord, re­mem­ber me.

Remember Thy pure Word of grace,
Remember Cal­va­ry’s tree,
Remember all Thy dy­ing groans,
And then re­mem­ber me.

Thou won­drous ad­vo­cate with God,
I yield my soul to Thee;
While Thou art plead­ing on the throne,
Dear Lord, re­mem­ber me.

Lord, I am guil­ty, I am vile,
But Thy sal­va­tion’s free;
Then, in Thine all abound­ing grace,
Dear Lord, re­mem­ber me.

Howe’er for­sak­en or des­pised,
Howe’er op­pressed I be,
Howe’er for­got­ten here on earth,
Do Thou re­mem­ber me.

And when I close my eyes in death,
And hu­man help shall flee,
Then, then, my dear re­deem­ing God,
O then re­mem­ber me.
