142, Part 2. By the gracious saving call

7.7.7.6

Litany of the Passion:

John Bacchus Dykes (1823-1876)

PART II

Thomas B. Pollock, 1871

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.

Amen.
