AND JESUS WEPT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Bright were the mornings first impearl'd
Last Line: May weep with those that weep.
Alternate Author Name(s): Brydges, Matthew
Subject(s): Jesus Christ


Bright were the mornings first impearl'd
O'er earth, and sea, and air;
The birthdays of a rifing world--
For power divine was there.

But fairer shone the tears of Christ
For Lazarus, o'er his grave;
Since love divine bedew'd the sod
Of one He sought to save.

Sweet drops of grace, the pledges given
Of Mercy's mighty plan--
That He, who was the Prince of heaven,
Had pity upon man!

Let us Thy dear example, Lord,
Fix'd in our memories keep--
That we, obedient to Thy word,
May weep with those that weep.
