HYMN Lyrics Text: Throughout These Forty Days O Lord
1. Throughout these forty days, O lord
With you we fast and pray,
That flesh subdued
And Spirit freed
Your will we may obey.
2. As you repelled temptation, Lord,
And conquered Satan’s reign,
Give us the strength to conquer sin,
And live by grace again.
3. Throughout these days of penitence,
Through lent and passion tide,
Take up your cross in us again,
In us be crucified.
4. Do not abandon us, O Lord.
But keep us at your side,
That we may rise to life a new,
Redeemed and glorified.
5. Abide with us until this life
Of sufering once past,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last.
