Newry 225t

Tune: M. C. H. Davis
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Benjamin Beddome, 1787
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)
Did Christ oer sinners weep,
And shall our cheeks be dry!
Let floods of penitential grief
Flow forth from evry eye.

The Son of God in tears,
Angels with wonder see;
Be thou astonished, O my soul!
He shed those tears for me.
