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.

Have we no tears to shed for him
While soldiers scoff and Jew deride
Ah! look how patiently he hangs
Jesus our Lord is crucified.

Seventimes 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 break, O break, hard heart of mine!
Thy weak selflove and guilty pride
His Pilate and his Judas were
Jesus our Lord is crucified.

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.

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.
