1 O tender beseechings of Jesus!
How sweetly they fall on the ear!
O gospel of grace and of kindness,
God's love and compassion bro’t near!
Is the Spirit of Jesus now striving?
His warning, my brother, obey;
Resist not His gracious beseeching,
O grieve not the Saviour away.
2 Beseeching in love for our Saviour,
Unworthy we pray in His stead;
Believe in the word of forgiveness,
Accept of the ransom He made. [Refrain]
3 Beseeching His blood-bought, His ransom’d,
Your blodies to Him gladly yield,
That, in you, and thro’ you, and by you,
His grace may be fully revealed. [Refrain]
4 Beseeching the saints to be holy,
Filled always with meekness and love,
Like Jesus so gently and lowly,
Reflecting the light from above. [Refrain]
5 Beseeching that all for His coming,
Unshaken may ever remain,
And stand with the saved and the chosen,
With Him in His glorious reign. [Refrain]
