WHY WEEPEST THOU




Why, O my soul, why weepest thou?
Tell me from whence arise
Those briny tears which often flow,
Those groans which pierce the skies:


Is sin the cause of thy complaint?
Or the chastising rod?
Dost thou an evil heart lament,
And mourn an absent God?


Dear Lord, it is for thee alone,
I weep, and seek, and pray;
O take from me this heart of stone,
And chase my fears away.


Fain would I weep for nought but sin,
And after none but thee:
O let me from this time begin,
And such a weeper be.
