151. Drop, drop, slow tears

1 Drop, drop, slow tears, and bathe those beauteous feet,
which brought from heav'n the news and Prince of peace.

2 Cease not, wet eyes, his mercies to entreat;
to cry for vengeance sin doth never cease.

3 In your deep floods drown all my faults and fears;
nor let his eye see sin, but through my tears.
