"The Glory of These Forty Days" - Used as an entrance or recessional song during the season of Lent. This is usually in the key of Em but as it is, it's too high for me. Use the Capo to make it higher. Also, this song sounds better on the organ or keyboard than with the guitar but we use what we have for now...

Lyrics and Chords:
Dm--------A7--------Dm-A7-Dm
The glory of these forty days
-----C----F------------Gm--------A
We celebrate with songs of praise;
Dm-Gm--------C-------F--C7--------------F
For Christ, by Whom all things were made,
A7--Dm-----------A7--------------Dm
Himself has fasted and has prayed.

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

So Daniel trained his mystic sight,
Delivered from the lions' might;
And John, the Bridegroom's friend, became
The herald of Messiah's Name.

Then grant us, Lord, like them to be
Full oft in fast and prayer with Thee;
Our spirits strengthen with Thy grace,
And give us joy to see Thy face.

O Father, Son, and Spirit blest,
To thee be every prayer addressed,
Who art in threefold Name adored,
From age to age, the only Lord.
