Our Morning Offering – 10 March – This Is Our Accepted Time

Our Morning Offering – 10 March – Tuesday of the Second Week of Lent

This Is Our Accepted Time
By Fr Michael Gannon (1927– 2017)

This is our accepted time,
This is our salvation.
Prayer and fasting are our hope,
Penance, our vocation.

God of pardon and of love,
Mercy past all measure,
You alone can grant us peace,
You, our holy treasure.

Lord, look down upon Your sons,
Look upon their yearning.
Man is dust and unto dust
He shall be returning,

Lift him up, O Lord of life,
Flesh has gained him sadness,
Hear his plea, bestow on him
Everlasting gladness.

This is Our Accepted Time was written in 1955 by Sulpician Priest, Fr Michael Gannon. It is set to the 1609 tune, Weimar (Vulpius) by composer, Melchior Vulpius (c.1560-1615). this is our accepted time - fr michael gannon lenten prayer hymn
