     1 And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor. 2 The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds: 3 But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter. 4 And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man’s lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him. 5 And David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die: 6 And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity. 7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; 8 And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things. 9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. 10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife.(KJV)

1. Lord Jesus, think on me 
And purge away my sin; 
From earth-born passions set me free 
And make me pure within. 

2. Lord Jesus, think on me 
With many a care opprest; 
Let me Thy loving servant be 
And taste Thy promised rest. 

3. Lord Jesus, think on me 
Amid the battle’s strife; 
In all my pain and misery 
Be Thou my Health and Life. 

4. Lord Jesus, think on me 
Nor let me go astray; 
Through darkness and perplexity 
Point Thou the heavenly way. 

5. Lord Jesus, think on me 
When floods the tempest high; 
When on doth rush the enemy, 
O Savior, be Thou nigh! 

6. Lord Jesus, think on me 
That, when the flood is past, 
I may the eternal brightness see 
And share Thy joy at last. 

7. Lord Jesus, think on me 
That I may sing above 
To Father, Spirit, and to Thee 
The strains of praise and love.
