Thou Man of grief, remember me,
Thou never canst Thyself forget.
Thy last expiring agony,
Thy fainting pangs and bloody sweat.


Thou Man of griefs, remember me,, Stanza 1a
2
Father, if I may call Thee so,
Regard my fearful heartís desire;
Remove this load of guilty woe,
Nor let me in my sins expire!


Thou Man of griefs, remember me,, Stanza 3a
3
I tremble, lest the wrath divine,
Which bruises now my wretched soul,
Should bruise this wretched soul of mine,
Long as eternal ages roll.


Thou Man of griefs, remember me,, Stanza 3b
