What Caused A Deep And Mournful Sound


What caus’d a deep and mournful sound?
What caus’d the earthquakes cleve the ground
Both heav’n and earth set in amaze?
The glorious Sun, to hide his face!

No wonder why the earth does shake,
The seas convuls’d, and mountains quake;
And nature shrinking with surprize,
Since Christ, the mighty Saviour dies.

His blood is streaming from the tree,
It is my Saviour, O ’tis he;
My only Saviour, O my God!
There shedding his attoning blood.

For me there on the Cross he hangs,
For me he feels such horrid pangs;
For me he yields his fleeting breath,
For me he dies that painful death.
