Text heard on Sample:

Sancta Mater, istud agas,
Crucifixi fige plagas
Cordi meo valide.

Tui nati vulnerati,
Tam dignati pro me pati,
Pœnas mecum divide.

Fac me vere tecum flere,
Crucifixo condolere,
Donec ego vixero.

Juxta crucem tecum stare,
Et me tibi sociare
In planctu desidero.

Holy Mother! pierce me through,
In my heart each wound renew
Of my Savior crucified:

Let me share with thee His pain,
Who for all my sins was slain,
Who for me in torments died.

Let me mingle tears with thee,
Mourning Him who mourned for me,
All the days that I may live:

By the Cross with thee to stay,
There with thee to weep and pray,
Is all I ask of thee to give.

trans Edward Caswall (1814–1878)
