Stabat mater dolorosa juxta Crucem lacrimosa, dum pendebat Filius. Quis est homo qui non fleret, matrem Christi si videret in tanto supplicio?
At the Cross her station keeping, stood the mournful Mother weeping, close to her Son to the last. Is there anyone who would not weep, whelmed in miseries so deep, Christ’s dear Mother to behold?
