Dying & Loss, Lament, Lent & Cross

Drop Drop Slow Tears

Drop, drop, slow tears,
and bathe those beauteous feet,
which brought from heaven the news
and Prince of Peace.

Cease not, wet eyes,
his mercies to entreat;
to cry for vengeance, sin
doth never cease.

In your deep floods,
drown all my faults and fears;
nor let his eye see sin,
but through my tears.

– Phineas Fletcher (1582-1650)

– A Good Friday hymn.

– While not exactly a prayer this is a prayerful reflection on the Cross!
