Weeping Saviour 32b

Tune: Elisha J. King, 1844
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Benjamin Beddome, 1787
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)
Did Christ oíer sinners weep,
And shall our cheeks be dry?
Let floods of penitential grief
Flow forth from evíry eye.

The Son of God in tears,
The wondíring angels see,
Be thou astonished, O my soul,
He shed those tears for me.

He wept that we might weep;
Each sin demands a tear,
In heavín alone no sin is found,
And thereís no weeping there.
