HYMN Lyrics Text: Oh Come And Mourn With Me A While Lenten Song
1. O come and morn with me a while.
See, Mary calls us to her side.
O come and let us mourn with her.
Jesus, our love is crucified.
2. Have we no tears to shed for Him,
while soldiers scoff
and Jews deride
Ah, look how patiently He hangs.
3. How fast His feet and hands
His blessed tongue
with thirst is tied.
His failing eyes are
blind with blood.
4. Seven times He spoke,
seven words of love.
And all three hours
His silence cried
for mercy on the souls of men.
5. O break, O break, hard
heart of mine
The weak self-love and
His Pilate and His Judas were
6. A broken heart, a fount of tears,
Ask, and they will not be denied.
A broken heart love’s crądle is.
7. O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act
your strength is tried
And victory remains with love.
