Description

SATB Choir - A wonderful and unexpected setting of the text by Frederick Faber. Haunting and just right for your Holy Week services. Can easily be done with a quartet as well.

O come and mourn with me awhile;
O come now to the Saviour's side;
O come, together let us mourn:
Jesus, our Love, is crucified.

Have we shed no tears to shed for him,
while soldiers scoff and foes deride?
Ah! Look how patiently he hangs:
Jesus, our Love, is crucified.

Seven times he spake, seven words of love;
and all three hours his silence cried
for mercy on the souls of all;
Jesus, our Love, is crucified.

O love of God! O sin-filled world!
In this dread act your strength is tried;
and victory remains with love:
For Christ, our Love, is crucified.
