Verse 1
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.

Verse 2
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

Verse 3
Seven 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

Verse 4
Oh break, oh break, hard heart of mine!
Thy weak self-love and guilty pride
Betray'd, condemn'd, and scourged thy Lord;
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified

Verse 5
Come, let us stand beneath the Cross;
The fountain opened in His side
Shall purge our deepest stains away;
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified

Verse 6
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

Verse 7
O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act your strength is tried;
And victory remainss with love:
Jesus, our Lord, is crucified
