Representative Text

1 In hunger, watch, and prayer,
These forty days were passed
By Thee, O Jesu; and Thy love
Doth sanctify our fast.

2 Through fleshly lusts indulged,
Man lost his first estate;
Thou wouldst restore by leading us
Our flesh to subjugate.

3 Be with Thy Church, O Lord;
Our self-denials bless;
Accept the tears Thy children shed
O’er all their frowardness.

4 Forgive, most gracious Lord,
The follies we deplore,
Prevent us with Thy guiding hand
That we may sin no more.

5 So do Thou in our souls
The power of sin destroy;
And make us fit to worship Thee
With Easter’s holy joy.
