Once more the solemn season calls

Hymnal: Hymnal #48 (1871) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent Lyrics: 1 Once more the solemn season calls A holy fast to keep; And now within the temple walls Both priest and people weep. 2 But vain all outward sign of grief, And vain the form of prayer, Unless the heart implore relief, And penitence be there. 3 We smite the breast, we weep in vain, In vain in ashes mourn, Unless with penitential pain The smitten soul be torn. 4 In sorrow true then let us pray To our offended God, From us to turn His wrath away, And stay the uplifted rod. 5 O God, our Judge and Father, deign To spare the bruisèd reed; We pray for time to turn again, For grace to turn indeed. 6 Blest Three in One, to Thee we bow; Vouchsafe us in Thy love To gather from these fasts below Immortal fruit above.

Forty days and forty nights

Author: George Hunt Smyttan Hymnal: The Hymnal #123 (1916) Meter: 7.7.7.7 Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent; Sunday Schools Lent Lyrics: Forty days and forty nights Thou wast fasting in the wild; Forty days and forty nights Tempted, and yet undefiled. Shall not we thy sorrow share, And from earthly joys abstain, Fasting with unceasing prayer, Glad with thee to suffer pain? And if Satan, vexing sore, Flesh or spirit should assail, Thou, his Vanquisher before, Grant we may not faint nor fail. So shall we have peace divine: Holier gladness ours shall be; Round us, too, shall angels shine, Such as ministered to thee. Keep, O keep us, Savior dear, Ever constant by thy side; That with thee we may appear At the eternal Eastertide. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: HEINLEIN

Christian! dost thou see them

Author: John Mason Neale; St. Andrew of Crete Hymnal: The Hymnal #126 (1916) Meter: 6.5.6.5 D Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent; Sunday Schools Lent Lyrics: Christian! dost thou see them On the holy ground, How the powers of darkness Rage thy steps around? Christian! up and smite them, Counting gain but loss; In the strength that cometh By the holy cross. Christian! dost thou feel then How they work within, Striving, tempting, luring, Goading into sin? Christian! never tremble; Never be downcast; Gird thee for the battle, Watch and pray and fast. Christian! dost thou hear them, How they speak thee fair? "Always fast and vigil? Always watch and prayer?" Christian! answer boldly: "While I breathe I pray!" Peace shall follow battle, Night shall end in day. "Well I know thy trouble, O my servant true; Thou art very weary, I was weary too; But that toil shall make thee Some day all mine own, And the end of sorrow Shall be near my throne."

Saviour! when in dust to Thee

Author: Robert Grant Hymnal: The Hymnal #130a (1916) Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent; Sunday Schools Lent Lyrics: Savior! when in dust to thee Low we bow the adoring knee; When, repentant, to the skies Scarce we lift our weeping eyes, O by all thy pains and woe Suffered once for man below, Bending from thy throne on high, Hear our solemn litany! By thy helpless infant years, By thy life of want and tears, By thy days of sore distress In the savage wilderness, By the dread mysterious hour Of the insulting tempter's power; Turn, O turn a favouring eye, Hear our solemn litany! By the sacred grief that wept O'er the grave where Lazarus slept; By the boding tears that flowed Over Salem's loved abode; By the anguished sigh that told Treachery lurked within thy fold; From thy seat above the sky, Hear our solemn litany! By thine hour of dire despair, By thine agony of prayer, By the cross, the nail, the thorn, Piercing spear, and torturing scorn; By the gloom that veiled the skies O'er the dreadful sacrifice; Listen to our humble cry, Hear our solemn litany! By thy deep expiring groan, By the sad sepulchral stone, By the vault, whose dark abode Held in vain the rising God: O from earth to heaven restored, Mighty, reascended Lord, Listen, listen to the cry Of our solemn litany! Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: SPANISH CHANT

O Jesus, Thou art standing

Author: W. Walsham How Hymnal: The Hymnal #132 (1916) Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent; Sunday Schools Lent Lyrics: O Jesus, thou art standing Outside the fast-closed door, In lowly patience waiting To pass the threshold o'er: Shame on us, Christian brothers, His Name and sign who bear; O shame, thrice shame upon us, To keep him standing there! O Jesus, thou art knocking: And lo! that hand is scarred, And thorns thy brow encircle, And tears thy face have marred: O love that passeth knowledge So patiently to wait! O sin that hath no equal, So fast to bar the gate! O Jesus, thou art pleading In accents meek and low: "I died for you, my children, And will ye treat me so?" O Lord, with shame and sorrow We open now the door: Dear Savior, enter, enter, And leave us nevermore. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: ST. HILDA

Heal me, O my Saviour, heal

Author: Godfrey Thring Hymnal: The Hymnal #137 (1916) Meter: 7.7.7 Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent; Sunday Schools Lent Lyrics: Heal me, O my Savior, heal; Heal me as I suppliant kneel; Heal me, and my pardon seal. Fresh the wounds that sin hath made; Hear the prayers I oft have prayed, And in mercy send me aid. Helpless, none can help me now; Cheerless, none can cheer but thou; Suppliant, Lord, to thee I bow. Thou the true Physician art; Thou, O Christ, canst health impart, Binding up the bleeding heart. Other comforters are gone; Thou canst heal, and thou alone, Thou for all my sin atone. Heal me, then, my Savior, heal; Heal me, as I suppliant kneel; To thy mercy I appeal. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: LACRYMAE

God the Father, God the Son

Author: Richard F. Littledale Hymnal: The Hymnal #141 (1916) Meter: 7.7.7.6 Topics: Ash Wednesday and Lent; Sunday Schools Lent Lyrics: God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit, Three in One, Hear us from thy heavenly throne: Spare us, Holy Trinity. Thou who, leaving crown and throne, Camest here, an outcast lone, That thou mightest save thine own: Hear us, Holy Jesus. Thou, despised, denied, refused, And for man's transgressions bruised, Sinless, yet of sin accused: Hear us, Holy Jesus. Thou who on the cross didst reign, Dying there in bitter pain, Cleansing with thy blood our stain: Hear us, Holy Jesus. Shepherd of the straying sheep, Comforter of them that weep, Hear us crying from the deep: Hear us, Holy Jesus. That in thy pure innocence We may wash our souls' offense, And find truest penitence: We beseech thee, Jesus. That we give to sin no place, That we never quench thy grace, That we ever seek thy face: We beseech thee, Jesus. That denying evil lust, Living godly, meek, and just, In thee only we may trust: We beseech thee, Jesus. That to sin for ever dead, We may live to thee instead, And the narrow pathway tread: We beseech thee, Jesus. When shall end the battle sore, When our pilgrimage is o'er, Grant thy peace for evermore: We beseech thee, Jesus. Amen. Languages: English Tune Title: LEBBAEUS
