Text and translations

English.png English text

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.

Hungarian.png Hungarian text

Ejts könnyeket,
és áldd a gyermeket,
ki meghozta az égi híreket.

A fellegek
is könnyet ejtenek,
hogy megváltotta mind a bűnöket.

és minden vétkemet,
a hulló könnycsepp mélyre eltemet.

Translation by Szabó Márk
