1
Jesus, my kind and gracious friend;
Simply I look to thee;
Now in the bowels of thy love,
Dear Lord, remember me.


Pisgah 58, Stanza 1

2
Remember thy pure word of grace,
Remember Calv’ry’s tree,
Remember all thy dying groans,
And then remember me.

Pisgah 58, Stanza 2
3
Thou wond’rous advocate with God,
I yield my soul to Thee;
While thou art pleading on the throne,
Dear Lord, remember me.


Pisgah 58, Stanza 3

4
I own I’m guilty, own I’m vile,
Yet thy salvation’s free;
Then, in thy all-abounding grace,
Dear Lord, remember me.



5
Howe’er forsaken or despis’d,
Howe’er oppress’d I be,
Howe’er forgotten here on earth,
Do thou remember me.



6
And when I close my eyes in death,
And human help shall flee;
Then, then, my dear redeeming God,
O then remember me.


Pisgah 58, Stanza 4
