1 Lord Jesus, who through forty days
for us did fast and pray,
Teach us with you to mourn our sins,
and close by you to stay.
2 As you with Satan did contend,
and did the victory win,
O give us strength to persevere,
in you to conquer sin.
3 And through these days of penitence,
and through this Passion-tide,
Yes, evermore, in life and death,
O Christ, with us abide.
4 Abide with us, till when this life
of suffering shall be past,
An Easter of unending joy
we may attain at last.
