Throughout These Lenten Days and Nights

Full Text

Throughout these Lenten days and nights
we turn to walk the inward way,
where, meeting Christ, our guide and light,
we live in hope till Easter day.
The pilgrim Christ, the Lamb of God,
who found in weakness greater power,
embraces us, though lost and flawed,
and leads us to his rising hour.
We bear the silence, cross and pain
of human burdens, human strife,
while sisters, brothers help sustain
our courage till the feast of life.
And though the road is hard and steep,
the Spirit ever calls us on
through Calvary’s dying, dark and deep,
until we see the coming dawn.
So let us choose the path of one
who wore for us the crown of thorn,
and slept in death that we might wake
to life on Resurrection Morn!
Rejoice, O sons and daughters! Sing
and shout hosannas! Raise the strain!
For Christ, whose death Good Friday brings,
on Easter day will live again!
