AGH 151

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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.
