O come and mourn with me a-while;

see Mary calls us to her side;

O come and let us mourn with her;

Jesus, our love, is crucified.

 

Have we no tears to shed for him,

while soldiers scoff and men deride?

Ah! Look how patiently he hangs;

Jesus, our love, is crucified.

 

Seven times he spoke, seven words of love,

and all three hours his silence cried

for mercy on the souls of men;

Jesus, our love, is crucified.

 

O break, O break, hard heart of mine:

thy weak self-love and guilty pride

his Pilate and his Judas were:

Jesus, our love, 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 love, is crucified.
