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 victory win, O give us strength in you to fight, in you to conquer sin.
As you did hunger and bear 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!
