Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days
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!
