142, Part 1. God the Father, God the Son

7.7.7.6

Turpin's Litany:

Edmund H. Turpin, 1875

PART I

Thomas B. Pollock, 1871

God the Father, God the Son,

God the Spirit, Three in One,

Hear us from thy heavenly throne:

Spare us, Holy Trinity.

Father, hear thy children's call:

Humbly at thy feet we fall,

Prodigals, confessing all:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Christ, beneath thy cross, we blame

All our life of sin and shame;

Penitent we breathe thy Name:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Holy Spirit, grieved and tried,

Oft forgotten and defied,

Now we mourn our stubborn pride:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Love, that caused us first to be,

Love, that bled upon the tree,

Love, that draws us lovingly:

We beseech thee, hear us.

We thy call have disobeyed,

Into paths of sin have strayed,

And repentance have delayed:

We beseech thee, hear us.

126

Sick, we come to thee for cure,

Guilty, seek thy mercy sure,

Evil, long to be made pure:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Blind, we pray that we may see,

Bound, we pray to be made free,

Stained, we pray for sanctity:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Thou who hear'st each contrite sigh,

Bidding sinful souls draw nigh,

Willing not that one should die:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Amen.
