Lyrics: Tune of “Frere Jacques”
Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving,
(Hands folded in prayer, hand on tummy, outstretched hands)
We are meant, to repent.
(Knock on heart 3 times)
40 days of sacrifice,
(One hand with 4 fingers up, one hand in shape of zero)
Being super, extra nice,
(Bend arms at elbows and swing back and forth)
This is Lent. This is Lent.
(Right hand out like holding a tray, then same with left.)
