THE SPIRITUAL MOURNER




Why, oh my soul, why weepest thou?
Oh say from whence arise
Those briny tears that often flow,
Those groans that pierce the skies.


Is sin the cause of thy complaint,
Or the chastising rod?
Dost thou departed friends lament,
or mourn an absent God?


Lord, let me weep for nought but sin,
And after none but thee!
And then I would —oh that I might,
A constant weeper be!
