O Come and Mourn with Me a While (Our Lord is Crucified)

1. O come and mourn with me awhile,
O come near to the Savior’s side
O come together, let us mourn,
Jesus our Lord is crucified.

2. 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.

Chorus: 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!

3. O break, O break, hard heart of mine!
My weak self-love and guilty pride
His Pilate and His Judas were:
Jesus our Lord is crucified.
(Repeat chorus)

O come and mourn with me awhile!
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.
Jesus our Lord is crucified.
(Repeat chorus)

And victory remains with love;
Jesus our Lord is crucified!
