Jesus, in the Desert

Jesus, in the desert,
you chose to walk alone;
for forty days the wilderness
served hunger like a stone.

Dreaming, waking, rising,
you walked the burning land;
your only comfort was the fire
of heart and head and hand.

Jesus, at your trial,
temptation did its best
to build you up, to tear you down,
to put you to the test.

Driven by the Spirit,
you found God's way within;
you  learned to rise above the pain,
to triumph over sin.
