Two-part (mixed) choir IN CANON, and organ. A setting of the hymn text by Claudia Hernaman to the English folksong The Turtle Dove.
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 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 your Passiontide,
Yes, evermore, in life and death,
Jesus, with us abide!
