Did Christ o'er sinners weep? And shall our cheeks be dry?
Enlarged from Beddome.
Did Christ o'er sinners weep? And shall our cheeks be dry? Let floods of penitential grief Burst forth from every eye.
The Son of God in tears The angels wondering see: Hast thou no wonder, O my soul? He shed those tears for thee!
He wept that we might weep, Might weep our sin and shame, He wept to shew His love for us, And bid us love the same.
Then tender be our hearts, Our eyes in sorrow dim, Till every tear from every eye Is wiped away by Him!
~ Henry Francis Lyte
