Hymn/Song Information

O darkest woe Ye tears forth flow




O darkest woe!
Ye tears, forth flow!
Has earth so sad a wonder?
God the Fatherís only Son
Now lies buried yonder.


O sorrow dread!
Godís Son is dead!
But by His expiation
Of our guilt upon the cross
Gained for us salvation.


O sinful man, it was the ban
Of death on thee that brought Him
Down to suffer for thy sins,
And such woe hath wrought Him.


Lo, stained with blood,
The Lamb of God,
The Bridegroom, lies before thee,
Pouring out His life that He
May to life restore thee.


Behold thy Lord, the Lamb of God
Blood sprinkled lies before thee,
Pouring out His life that He
May to life restore thee.


O Ground of faith,
Laid low in death,
Sweet lips, now silent sleeping!
Surely all that live must mourn
Here with bitter weeping.


O blest shall be
Eternally
Who oft in faith will ponder
Why the glorious Prince of Life
Should be buried yonder.


O Jesus blest, my Help and Rest!
With tears I pray, Lord hear me,
Make me love Thee to the last,
And in death be near me.
