Forty Days And Forty Nights : Lyrics
Other settings of Forty Days And Forty Nights
1. Forty days and forty nights
You were fasting in the wild;
Forty days and forty nights,
Tempted, and yet undefiled.
2. Sunbeams scorching all the day,
Chilly dew-drops nightly shed,
Prowling beasts about your way,
Rocks your pillow, earth your bed.
3. Shall not we your sorrow share
And from worldly joys abstain,
Fasting with unceasing prayer,
Strong with you to suffer pain?
4. Then, if Satan on us press,
Flesh or spirit to assail,
Victor in the wilderness,
Grant we may not faint nor fail!
5. So shall we have peace divine;
Holier gladness ours shall be.
Round us, too, shall angels shine,
Such as served You faithfully.
6. Keep, O keep us, Saviour dear,
Ever constant by your side,
That with you we may appear
At th’eternal Eastertide.
