Genre: Hymn
This is my 4th entry in the Lenten-Hymn-of-the-Day project.

The name of the tune is "Jesu dulcis memoria", and it was published in Andernach in 1608. The words are by St. Gregory the Great (540-604), and this translation dates from 1941 for the "1940 Hymnal" of the Episcopal Church.

One FULL verse of introduction.

Kind Maker of the world, O hear
The fervent prayer, with many a tear
Poured forth by all the penitent
Who keep this holy fast of Lent!

Each heart is manifest to thee,
Thou knowest our infirmity;
Now we repent, and seek thy face;
Grant unto us thy pard'ning grace.

Spare us, O Lord, who now confess
Our sins and all our wickedness,
And, for the glory of they Name,
Our weakened souls to health reclaim.

Give us the self-control that springs
From abstinence in outward things;
That from each stain and spot of sin,
Our souls may keep the fast within.

Grant, O thou blessed Trinity;
Grant, O unchanging Unity;
That this our fast of forty days
May work our profit and thy praise! Amen.
