2-part mixed
Suggested Uses(s)

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 with Satan didst contend,
And didst the victory win,
O give us strength in Thee to fight,
In Thee to conquer sin.

As Thou didst hunger bear, and thirst,
So teach us, gracious Lord,
To die to self, and chiefly live
By Thy most holy Word.

Abide with us, that so, this life
Of suffering over past,
An Easter of unending joy
We may attain at last.
