Ash Wednesday

An introduction to Songs in the Desert and "Ye watchers and ye holy ones" (Hymn 618) from David Sinden.


Download this episode (mp3).

Songs in the Desert is an audio Lenten devotional exploring Christian hymns. Every weekday in Lent, listen to a reflection from a different contributor on a hymn that they find meaningful.

Hymn numbers, when given, refer to the Episcopal Hymnal 1982. But most hymns can be found in many different hymnals.

Today's collect is the Collect for Ash Wednesday. Other proper collects for the weekdays of Lent are from Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2006.

Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
