LITANIES OF PENITENCE




Teach us what Thy love has borne,
That with loving sorrow torn
Truly contrite we may mourn:
We beseech Thee, hear us.


Gifts of light and grace bestow,
Help us to resist the foe,
Fearing what alone is woe;
We beseech Thee, hear us.


Let not sin within us reign.
May we gladly suffer pain,
If it purge away our stain:
We beseech Thee, hear us.


May we to all evil die,
Fleshly longings crucify,
Fix our hearts and thoughts on high:
We beseech Thee, hear us.


Grant us faith to know Thee near,
Hail Thy grace, Thy judgement fear,
And through trial persevere:
We beseech Thee, hear us.


Grant us hope from earth to rise,
And to strain with eager eyes
Towards the promised heavenly prize:
We beseech Thee, hear us.


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.


All our weak endeavours bless,
As we ever onward press,
Till we perfect holiness:
We beseech Thee, hear us.


Lead us daily nearer Thee,
Till at last Thy face we see,
Crown’d with Thine own purity:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
