The Holy Passiontide
Oh Come And Mourn With Me
Oh Come and Mourn with me awhile
See, Mary call us to her side
O come and let us mourn with her
Jesus our Love is crucified

Have we no tears to shed for Him
While soldiers scuff and Jews deride?
Behold how patiently He hangs
Jesus our Love is crucified

He sevenfold spoke seven words of love
and all three hours his silence cried
For mercy on the souls of men
Jesus our Love is crucified



 
Parce Domine parce populo tuo
me in aeternum irascaris nobis

Parce Domine parce populo tuo
me in aeternum irascaris nobis

Parce Domine parce populo tuo
me in aeternum irascaris nobis
Parce Domine
O Sacred Head Surrounded
O Sacred Head Surrounded
By Crowns of Piercing Thorns
O bleeding Head so wounded
Reviled and put to scourn
Death's pallid hue comes o'er
Thee The glow of life decays
Yet angel host adore Thee
And tremble as they gaze

I see Thy strength and vigor
All fading in the strife
and death with cruel vigor
Bereaving Thee of life
O agony and dying
O love to sinners free
Jesus all grace supplying
O turn Thy face on me
Oh Come And Mourn With Me (Melody 2)
Oh Come and Mourn with me awhile
See, Mary call us to her side
O come and let us mourn with her
Jesus our Love is crucified

Have we no tears to shed for Him
While soldiers scuff and Jews deride?
Behold how patiently He hangs
Jesus our Love is crucified

He sevenfold spoke seven words of love
and all three hours his silence cried
For mercy on the souls of men
Jesus our Love is crucified


By The Blood That Flowed From Thee
By the Blood that flowed from Thee
In Thy bitter agony
By the scourge so meekly borne
By Thy purple robe of scorne

Jesus Saviour hear our cry
Thou wert suffering
Once as we Hear the loving litany
We Thy children sing to Thee

By the Thornes that crown Thy Head
By Thy Scepter of a reed
By Thy footstep faint and slow
Weighed beneath Thy Cross of woe

By the nails and pointed spear
By Thy people's cruel jeer
By Thy dying prayer which rose
Begging mercy for Thy foes.
