Hymn: Wild wilderness, pathetic desolation

First Sunday in Lent Year A
Matthew 4: 1 – 11

Wild wilderness, pathetic desolation,
as Jesus walked, then rested for the night,
for forty days his strength was tried and tested,
for forty days he sifted wrong and right.

He woke to hunger tangled in his being,
what miracle might turn these stones to bread...
