O Sorrow Deep

Click play to hear today’s podcast.

O sorrow deep! 
Who would not weep
with heartfelt pain and sighing!
God the Father’s only Son 
in the tomb is lying.

The Paschal Lamb, 
like Isaac’s ram,
in blood was offered for us,
pouring out his life 
that he might to life restore us.

Blest shall they be eternally
who ponder in their weeping
that the glorious Prince of Life 
should in death be sleeping,

O Jesus blest, my help and rest,
with tears I pray thee, hear me:
now, and even unto death, 
dearest Lord, be near me.
