Drop Drop Slow Tears : Lyrics
1. Drop, drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beauteous feet,
Which brought from heav’n
the news and Prince of peace.
2. Cease not, wet eyes,
His mercies to entreat;
To cry for vengeance
Sin doth never cease.
3. In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let his eye
See sin, but through my tears.
