O Come And Mourn

O Come And Mourn With Me A While

Easter is about Christ’s resurrection and victory over death, but there’s a time to remember the cross and mourn. This song is a great reflection on Christ’s time on the cross.

O come and mourn with me a while
O come ye to the Savior’s side
O come together, let us mourn
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act Your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

Seven times He spoke seven words of love
And all three hours His silence cried
For mercy on the souls of men
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act Your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O break, O break, hard heart of mine
Thy weak self-love and guilty pride
His Pilate and His Judas were
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act Your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

A broken heart, a fount of tears
Ask and they will not be denied
A broken heart love’s cradle is
Jesus our Lord is crucified

O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act Your strength is tried
And victory remains with love
Jesus our Lord is crucified

This is a nicely animated video of Jars Of Clay’s version of this song.
