General Information

Title: Weeping Mary
First Line: Come all ye mourning pilgrims now
Composer: Jeremiah Ingalls
Lyricist: Anonymous

Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: STB
Genre: Sacred   Meter: 86. 86. D (C.M.D.), plus chorus (86.86)

Language: English
Instruments: A cappella

First published: 1805 in Ingalls' The Christian Harmony, p. 73, for three voices: Treble-Tenor-Bass

Description: Meter of the music is 86. 86. 86. 86. (C. M. D.) – Ingalls repeated the second couplet to accommodate the chorus. Probably a folk hymn (Jackson 1952, no. 101). Stanza 4 borrowed from an older folk hymn (Jackson 1953b, nos. 47 and 164) Words by an unknown author, before 1790. The meter of words printed in Ingalls doesn't match his music: probably a misprint, since the words in Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the Use of Christians does fit his music.

Salvation to our King

1. Come all ye mourning pilgrims now,
The joyful news I'll tell,
The Lord hath sent salvation down.
To save our souls from hell.
The angels brought the tidings down,
To shepherds in the field,
That God to men is reconciled,
His Son to men revealed.
CHORUS.
Sing glory, honor to the Lord,
Salvation to our King,
Let all that's washed in Jesus' blood,
His glorious praises sing.

2. Come all ye poor despised souls.
Unto his fold repair,
Where God his boundless love unfolds,
And says he'll meet you there.
His glorious presence fills our souls,
With songs of loudest praise,
Let all that want a Savior dear,
Their hearts and voices raise.
CHORUS.
Sing glory, honor to the Lord,
Salvation to our King,
Let all that's washed in Jesus' blood,
His glorious praises sing.

3. There's glory, glory in my soul.
It came from heaven above.
Which makes me praise my God so bold,
And his dear children love.
I'll serve the bleeding Lamb of God,
I love his ways so well,
Because his precious blood was spilt
To save my soul from hell.
CHORUS.
Sing glory, honor to the Lord,
Salvation to our King,
Let all that's washed in Jesus' blood,
His glorious praises sing.

4. When weeping Mary came to seek
Her Lord with a perfume,
The wrapper and the sheet she found
Together in the tomb;
The angel said he is not here,
He's risen from the dead;
And streams of grace to sinners flow,
As free as did his blood.
CHORUS.
Sing glory, honor to my God,
He's now upon his throne,
And bringing foreign strangers home.
And claims them for his own.

From Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the Use of Christians, Philadelphia, 1803

Her Lord with a perfume,
The napkin and the sheet she found
Together in the tomb.

He's risen from the dead;
And streams of grace to sinners flow,
As free as did his blood.
