Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days


During Lent the local Catholic church uses the hymn Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days.
My favorite line is “always live by your most holy word”.

Does your church use the hymn Lord Who Throughout These Forty Days?



I don’t think we have sung this this year but we have in the past (and still a good part of Lent left)


Yes, our parish does.


Today, as a matter of fact. :slight_smile:


We sang it on Ash Wednesday. One of my favorites.


You hear about the time when this was announced as the closing hymn and a little old lady who was hard of hearing turned to her husband and remarked “I can’t believe it. Lent’s just been canceled.”

(old joke among church musicians, better told than read :D)


I have to say I didn’t get it until I said it out loud. I can’t wait to tell someone.

Oh, and yes, I use it.


I have tried figuring this out for the longest time and still don’t get it!


Lord who threw out these forty days! :slight_smile:


Thanks! I was really over thinking it.
