1. Led by the Spirit of our God, we go to fast and pray
With Christ into the wilderness; we join his paschal way.
"Rend not your garments, rend your hearts. Turn back your lives to me."
Thus says our kind and gracious God, whose reign is liberty.
2. Led by the Spirit, we confront temptation face to face,
And know full well we must rely on God's redeeming grace.
On bread alone we cannot live, but nourished by the Word
We seek the will of God to do: this is our drink and food.
3. Led by the Spirit, now draw near the waters of rebirth
With hearts that long to worship God in spirit and in truth.
"Whoever drinks the drink I give shall never thirst again."
Thus says the Lord who died for us, our Savior, kindred friend.
4. Led by the Spirit, now sing praise to God the Trinity:
The Source of Life, the living Word made flesh to set us free,
The Spirit blowing where it will to make us friends of God:
This mystery far beyond our reach, yet near in healing love.
