  1. 1. In fasting we approach thee here
    And pray thy Spirit from above
    Will cleanse our hearts, cast out our fear,
    And fill our hunger with thy love.
  2. 2. Thru this small sacrifice, may we
    Recall that strength and life each day
    Are sacred blessings sent from thee—
    Fill us with gratitude, we pray.
  3. 3. And may our fast fill us with care
    For all thy children now in need.
    May we from our abundance share,
    Thy sheep to bless, thy lambs to feed.
  4. 4. This fast, dear Father, sanctify—
    Our faith and trust in thee increase.
    As we commune and testify,
    May we be filled with joy and peace.
