we sang this in church this morning. I'm still fairly new to the liturgical calendar and it resonates with me.
Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days
1 Lord! Who throughout these forty days,
For us didst fast and pray,
Teach us with Thee to mourn our sins,
And close by Thee to stay.
2 As Thou with Satan didst contend,
And didst the victory win,
Oh, give us strength in Thee to fight,
In Thee to conquer sin.
3 As Thou didst hunger bear and thirst,
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and chiefly live
By Thy most holy Word.
4 And through these days of penitence,
And through Thy Passion-tide,
Yea, evermore, in life and death,
Jesu! with us abide.
5 Abide with us, that so, this life
Of suffering overpast,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!
