1 O May I always bear in mind
The Saviour's pity for mankind,
    Which brought Him from His throne,
Emptied of all His majesty,
A Man of griefs to comfort me,
    And make my heart His own.

2 O may I in His love delight,
Muse on His love both day and night,
    And think of nothing more,
To Him with pure affection cleave,
And only in His presence live
    To wonder and adore.
