THOU Man of griefs, remember me,
L.M. Hebrews v. 7, 8.
1 THOU Man of griefs, remember me,
Who never canst thyself forget!

Thy fainting pangs, and bloody sweat!

Thy spirit sunk beneath its load,
Thy feeble flesh abhorred to bear
The wrath of an almighty God.

And screened from the heat of the day.

The place of ...read

In humble prayer and fervent praise.
