Text by Phineas Fletcher, 1580-1650

Drop, drop slow tears.
Drop, drop slow tears
and bathe those beauteous feet
which brought from heaven the news
and Prince of peace.
To cry for vengeance.
Sin doth never cease in Thy deep flood.
Drown all my faults and my fears
nor let His eyes see sin;
But through my tears
