William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
A Litany
By Phineas Fletcher (1582–1650)
 
DROP, drop, slow tears,
  And bathe those beauteous feet
Which brought from Heaven
  The news and Prince of Peace:
Cease not, wet eyes,        5
  His mercy to entreat:
To cry for vengeance
  Sin doth never cease.
In your deep floods
  Drown all my faults and fears;        10
Nor let His eye
  See sin, but through my tears.
