Tomorrow we walk down into the purple valley of Lent. But today, which some call “Fat Tuesday” we still celebrate. However, in lent, as the hymns says,
Alleluia we deserve not here to sing for evermore;
Alleluia our transgressions make us for a while give o’er;
for the holy time is coming bidding us our sins deplore.
Therefore in our hymns we now pray, grant us, blessed Trinity,
At the last to keep your, Easter, in our home beyond the sky;
There to you for ever singing Alleluia joyfully.
