PENITENCE
288
2   Let not sin within us reign, May we gladly suffer pain, If it purge away our stain:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
3   Grant us love, Thy love to own, Love to live for Thee alone,
And the power of grace make known: We beseech Thee, hear us. 4 All our weak endeavors bless, As we ever onward press, Till we perfect holiness:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Rev. Thomas H. Pollock, 1875
289
2   Christ, beneath Thy cross we blame All our life of sin and shame, Penitent, we breathe Thy name:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
3   Holy Spirit, grieved and tried, Oft forgotten and defied,
Now we mourn our stubborn pride: We beseech Thee, hear us.
4  Love that caused us first to be, Love that bled upon the tree, Love that draws us lovingly:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
5   We Thy call have disobeyed, Into paths of sin have strayed, And repentance have delayed:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
6  Thou who hear'st each contrite sigh, Bidding sinful souls draw nigh, Willing not that one should die,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
7  By the love that bids Thee spare, By the heaven Thou dost prepare, By Thy promises to prayer,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Rev. Thomas B. Pollock, 1875
