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

Lyrics – 5 verses

Suitable for: Lent, Passiontide

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 vict’ry win,
O 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 always live
By your most holy word.

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

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

Arise and sing a joyful song (Morning Song)

Lyrics

Published with Permission of the author: Rev. Brian L. Penney

1. Arise and sing a joyful song,
All you who dwell on earth;
Let ev’ry heart and ev’ry tongue
Proclaim the Savior’s birth.

2. Behold the Son was virgin-born,
By God’s mysterious pow’r;
Into this world, by sin destroyed,
He came at life’s dark hour.

3. The Light of life, incarnate Word,
The prophets did record;
Took on Himself the form of man,
That man might be restored.

4. In sacrificial love He came
And for our fallen race;
Upon Himself He took God’s wrath,
In death He took our place.

5. Now with the angels praise the One
Who bore our sins away;
With love, and joy, and gratitude,
Hail Him this Christmas day.
