Advent Hymnals

750. MOURN FOR THE SLAIN

Christ in Song,

1.
Mourn for the thousands slain,
The youthful and the strong,
Mourn for the wine-cup's fearful reign,
And the deluded throng.

2.
Mourn for the lost, but call,
Call to the strong, the free;
Rouse them to shun that dreadful fall,
And to the Refuge flee.

3.
Mourn for the lost, but pray,
Pray to our God above,
To break the fell destroyer's sway.
And show his saving love.
