- ST FLAVIAN, from John Day's Psalter, 1562
LyricsThese forty days of Lent, O Lord,
With you we fast and pray;
Teach us to discipline our wills
And follow Lord your way.
As you with Satan did contend,
And did the victory win,
O give us strength in You to fight,
In you, to conquer sin.
As thirst and hunger you have known
So teach us gracious Lord,
To die to self and only live
By your most holy word.
And through these days of penitence,
And through your Passiontide,
Forever more, in life and death,
O Lord with us abide.
Abide with us, so that this life
Of suffering once past,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last.
