Hymn/Song Information

Did Christ over sinners weep And shall our cheeks




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 wondering angels see:
Be thou astonished, 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.


---Alternative verses---


He wept that we might weep;
Each sin demands a tear;
In heaven alone no sin is found,
And weeping is not there.
