Litanies of Penitence 142, Part 3. Teach us what thy love has borne

Agnes:

Edward Bunnett, 1877

Thomas B. Pollock, 1871

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 judgment 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,

Crowned with thine own purity:

We beseech thee, hear us.

Amen.
