Description

SATB and organ.  A setting of the famous "Drop, drop slow tears" text by Phineas Fletcher.  Slow and mournful.

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.
