Did Christ o’er sinners weep?
And shall our cheeks be dry?
Let floos of penitential grief
Burst forth from every eye.

The Son of God in tears,
Angels with wonder see!
Be thou astonish’d, O my soul,
He shed those tears for thee.

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