Description

Two-Part Mixed (Men/Women) Choir and Organ. A setting of the Early American hymn tune Consolation (1816). Perfect for Ash Wednesday or the first Sunday of Lent. Could be sung during the imposition of ashes. Organ interludes between stanzas. Also available as an SATB anthem.

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.

And through these days of penitence,
And through Thy passiontide,
Yea, evermore in life and death,
Jesus, with us abide.

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