    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
