1 Drop, slow tears of anguish, sing of love unknown;
watch as in the garden Jesus weeps alone,

seeking strength to finish what he has begun:
“Through this cup of suffering let your will be done.”

2 Peter, at the fireside, weep your bitter tears;
give up to your Saviour all your shame and fears.
He will still forgive you, Christ who freely gave;
let him take your failures with him to the grave.

3 Shed your tears of sorrow: Christ hangs on the cross;
Mary, standing by him, weeps her love and loss.
See the blood and water, balm distilled from pain:
by his wounds he heals us, bringing life again.

4 Wipe our eyes, O Saviour, in the darkest night;
as we long to see you in the dawning light.
When the world feels broken, trapped behind a stone,

raise us up, and teach us songs of love made known.
