1 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,
and didst the victory win,
O give us strength in thee to fight,
in thee to conquer sin.
3 As thou didst hunger bear, and thirst,
so teach us, gracious Lord,
to die to self, and chiefly live
by thy most holy word.
4 And through these days of penitence,
and through thy passiontide,
yea, evermore in life and death,
Jesus, with us abide.
5 Abide with us, that so, this life
of suffering over past,
an Easter of unending joy
we may attain at last.
