Verse 1

The glory of these forty days
we celebrate with songs of praise;
for Christ, by whom all things were made,
Himself has fasted and has prayed.

Verse 2

Alone and fasting Moses saw
the loving God who gave the law;
and to Elijah, fasting, came
the steeds and chariots of flame.

Verse 3

So Daniel trained his mystic sight,
delivered from the lions' might;
and John, the Bridegroom's friend, became
the herald of Messiah's name.

Verse 4

Then grant that we like them be true
consumed in fast and prayer with You;
Our spirits strengthen with your grace,
and give us joy to see your face.
