By the gracious saving call

By the gracious saving call
spoken tenderly to all
who have shared in Adam's fall,
we beseech thee, hear us.

By the nature Jesus wore,
by the stripes and death he bore,
by his life for evermore,
we beseech thee, hear us.

By the love that longs to bless,
pitying our sore distress,
leading us to holiness,
we beseech thee, hear us.

By the love so calm and strong,
patient still to suffer wrong
and our day of grace prolong,
we beseech thee, hear us.

By the love that speaks within,
calling us to flee from sin
and the joy of goodness win,
we beseech thee, hear us.

By the love that bids thee spare,
by the heaven thou dost prepare,
by thy promises to prayer,
we beseech thee, hear us.

Thomas Benson Pollock (1836-1896)

The second part of a litany for penitence.
