First Line: Drop, drop, slow tears
Last Line: See sin, but through my tears.
Variant Title(s): A Litany
Subject(s): Tears

DROP, drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beauteous feet
Which brought from Heaven
The news and Prince of Peace:
Cease not, wet eyes,
His mercy to entreat;
To cry for vengeance
Sin doth never cease.
In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let His eye
See sin, but through my tears.
