A Litany - Tekst en vertaling

Componist: William Walton

Tekst

Drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beateous 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.
Drop, slow tears.
In your deep flood.
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let his eye see sin,
but through my tears.
