O COME AND MOURN WITH ME AWHILE

1.O COME and mourn  with  me awhile;
O come ye to the Saviour's side;
O come, together let us mourn:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

2. Have we no tears to shed for Him,
While  soldiers  scoff and Jews deride?
Ah! look how patiently He hangs:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

3.How fast His hands and feet are nailed,
His throat with parching thirst is dried!
His failing eyes are dim with woe :
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

4.Seven times He spoke, seven words of love;
And all three hours His silence cried
For mercy on the souls of men:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

5.Come,let us stand beneath the Cross;
The fountain opened in His side
Shall purge our deepest stains away:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

6.A broken heart, a fount of tears,
Ask, and they will not be denied;
A broken heart love's cradle is:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

7.O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act your strength is tried;
And victory remains with love :
For He, our Lord, is crucified
