Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days

Text:  Claudia F. Hermann  1873
Music:  Day's Psalter  1562
Tune:  St. Flavian  8 6 8 6
OHT Incipit:  

Lord, who throughout these forty days,
For us did fast and pray,
Teach us with Thee to mourn our sins,
And close by Thee to stay.

As Thou with Satan did contend,
And didst the victory win,
O give us strength in Thee to fight,
In Thee to conquer sin

And through these days of penitence,
And through the Pasiontide,
Yea, evermore, in life and death,
Jesus! with us abide.

Abide with us, that so, this life
Of suffering overpast,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!
