O Love How Deep (Eisenach, Organ, 6 Verses)

O Love How Deep Lyrics

O love, how deep, how broad, how high!
How passing thought and fantasy,
That God, the Son of God, should take
Our mortal form for mortals’ sake!

He sent no angel to our race
Of higher power or lower place,
But wore the robe of human frame
Himself, and this lost world came.

For us baptized, for us he bore
His holy fast and hunger sore;
For us temptations sharp he knew,
For us the tempter overthrew.

For us to wicked men betrayed,
Scourged, mocked, in crown of thorns arrayed;
For us he bore the cross’s death,
For us at length gave up his breath.

For us he rose from death again,
For us he went on high to reign;
For us he sent his Spirit here
To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.

All honor, laud, and glory be,
O Jesus, virgin-born, to thee;
whom with the Father we adore,
and Holy Ghost, forevermore.

Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days (Saint Flavian, Organ, 5 verses)

Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days Lyrics

This recording of Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

1. 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.

2. As you with Satan did contend,
And did the vict’ry win,
O give us strength in you to fight,
In you to conquer sin.

3. As you did hunger bear and thirst,
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and always live
By your most holy word.

4. And through these days of penitence,
And through your Passiontide,
Forevermore, in life and death,
O Lord, with us abide.

5. Abide with us that when this life
Of suffering is past,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last!

Forty Days And Forty Nights (Aus Der Tiefe, Organ, 5 Verses)

Forty Days And Forty Nights Lyrics

Suitable for: Lent

Forty days and forty nights
You were fasting in the wild;
Forty days and forty nights,
Tempted, and yet undefiled.

Shall not we your sorrow share
And from worldly joys abstain,
Fasting with unceasing prayer,
Strong with you to suffer pain?

Then, if Satan on us press,
Flesh or spirit to assail,
Victor in the wilderness,
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 served You faithfully.

Keep, O keep us, Savior dear,
Ever constant by your side,
That with you we may appear
At th’eternal Eastertide.
