1Oh come and mourn with me awhile!
The Savior calls us to His side;
Oh come, together let us mourn:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified!
2Seven 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!
3Oh break, oh break, hard heart of mine!
Thy weak self-love and guilty pride
His Pilate and His Judas were:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified!
4A broken heart, a fount of tears,
Ask, and they will not be denied;
A broken heart love’s dwelling is:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified!
5O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act your strength is tried,
And victory remains with love:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified! Amen.
