262. O Come and Mourn with Me Awhile

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

2 Sev'n times he spake, sev'n words of love;
And all three hours his silence cried
For mercy on the souls of men;
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified.

3 O break, O break, hard heart of mine!
Thy weak self-love and guilty pride
His Pilate and his Judas were:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified!

4 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!

5 O 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!
