Lyrics

Traditional

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.

As Thou with Satan didst contend,
And didst the victory win,
Oh, give us strength in Thee to fight,
In Thee to conquer sin.

As Thou didst hunger bear and thirst,
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and chiefly live
By Thy most holy Word.

And through these days of penitence,
And through Thy Passion-tide,
Yea, evermore, in life and death,
Jesu! with us abide.

Abide with us, that so, this life
Of suffering overpast,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!


Modern English

Lord! Who throughout these forty days,
For us did fast and pray,
Teach us with You to mourn our sins,
And close by You to stay.

As You with Satan did contend,
And did the victory win,
Oh, give us strength in You to fight,
In You to conquer sin.

As You did hunger bear, and thirst,
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and chiefly live
By Your most holy Word.

And through these days of penitence,
And through Your Passion-tide,
Yea, evermore, in life and death,
Jesus with us abide.

Abide with us, that so, this life
Of suffering overpast,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!
