1.  Lord, who throughout these forty days,

For us didst fast and pray,

Teach us with Thee to mourn our sin,

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.  And through these days of penitence,

And through Thy Passiontide,

Yea, evermore, in life and death,

Jesus! with us abide.

4.  Abide with us, that so, this life

Of suffering overpast,

An Easter of unending joy

We may attain at last!
