Claudia F. Hernaman, 1873
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,
3. As thou didst hunger bear and thirst,|
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and chiefly lye
By thy most holy word.
4. And through these days of penitence,
5. Abide with us, that so, this life|
Of suffering overpast,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!
