Lenten hoping, waiting and trusting.
Rising water forty days, then Noah opened up the window
Rain and flooding chaos with no sky.
On the mountain forty days, our Moses swallowed in a cloud of
dreadful holy presence all that time.
Forty days of hoping, waiting, trusting
til the season ripens true.
Taunting giant forty days Goliath every morn and evening
in the valley terror and dismay.
Ninevah had forty days The people listened well to Jonah
All were spared because they changed their ways. Refrain
Fearful journey forty days, Elijah to the holy mountain
Two small meals sustaining flesh and soul.
Tested, tempted forty days, our Jesus in the aching desert,
evil pressing in and all alone. Refrain
Trust is ripening within, the seed beginning to break open
We together journey Lenten time
Somehow nourished as we go and somehow guided in the mystery
with the holy presence every night. Refrain
