First Line: When the lord christ paid life with death
Last Line: And in the living see the dead.
Subject(s): Good Friday; Holidays; Holy Week

When the Lord Christ paid life with death,
Beside the cross his Mother stood:
She saw her child yield up his breath,
She knew the passing of her God.

And he said: Weep not. Though I go,
I leave thee not without a son.
All souls for whom my blood doth flow
Shall call thee mother: all for one.

And Mary said: So be it done.
Be they my children in thy stead.
I will love all, who loved but one,
And in the living see the dead.
