153. O come and mourn with me awhile

L.M.

St. Cross:

John B. Dykes, 1861

Frederick William Faber, 1849;

Alt.

O come and mourn with me awhile;

And tarry here the cross beside;

O come, together let us mourn;

Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

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.

Seven times he spake, seven words of love;

And all three hours his silence cried

For mercy on the souls of men;

Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

O love of God! O sin of man!

In this dread act your strength is tried;

And victory remains with love;

For thou, our Lord, art crucified!

Amen.
