Forty days and forty nights

Forty days and forty nights
you were fasting in the wild;
forty days and forty nights
tempted, and yet undefiled.

Shall not we your sorrow share
and from worldly joys abstain,
fasting with unceasing prayer,
strong with you to suffer pain?

Keep, O keep us, Savior dear,
ever constant by your side,
that with you we may appear
at the eternal Eastertide.
