Dear Friend of Hymnary,

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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!
