Tuesday in the Fourth Week of Lent

"O Food to pilgrims given" (Hymn 308) from Meg Carter. The original translation by Athelstan Riley begins "O Food of men wayfaring". It is a translation of the Latin hymn "O esca viatorum".

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.

O God, with you is the well of life, and in your light we see light: Quench our thirst with living water, and flood our darkened minds with heavenly light; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Proper collects for the weekdays of Lent are from Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2006.
