Verse 1
      Em       B7       Em
The glory of these forty days,
     D     G                 D         G
we celebrate with songs of praise;
      Am               D             D               Em
For Christ, by whom all things were made,
    Em              C        Em  B7 Em
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,
deliver'd from the lion's might;
And John the Bridegroom's friend
became the herald of Messiah's name.

Verse 4
Then grant us Lord like them to do,
such things as bring great praise to You;
Our spirit strengthen with Your grace,
and give us joy to see Your face.

Verse 5
O Father, Son and Spirit blest,
to You be ev'ry pray'r addressed,
And by all manking be adored,
from age to age the only Lord.
