1270. Drop, Drop, Slow Tears

1. Drop, drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beauteous feet,
Which brought from Heav’n
The news and Prince of Peace.

2. Cease not, wet tears,
His mercies to entreat;
To cry for vengeance:
Sin doth never cease.

3. In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let His eye see
Sin, but through my tears.
