10 By the gracious saving call,
Spoken tenderly to all
Who have shared in Adam's fall:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

11 By the nature Jesus wore,
By the stripes and death He bore,
By His life for evermore:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

12 By the love that longs to bless,
Pitying our sore distress,
Leading us to holiness:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

13 By the love so calm and strong,
Patient still to suffer wrong
And our day of grace prolong:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

14 By the love that speaks within,
Calling us to flee from sin,
And the joy of goodness win:
We beseech Thee, hear us.

15 By the love that bids Thee spare,
By the heaven Thou dost prepare,
By Thy promises to prayer:
We beseech Thee, hear us.
