Bei des Mittlers Kreuze standen
bang Maria und Johannes,
seine Mutter und sein Freund.
Durch der Mutter bange Seele,
ach durch ihre ganze Seele,
ach, drang ein Schwert,
durchdrang ein Schwert.

This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary
for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees,
the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02%
of our visitors.
So if you found
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
Près de la croix du Sauveur se tiennent,
Inquiets, Marie et Jean,
Sa mère et son ami.
À travers l'âme inquiète de la mère,
Hélas, à travers son âme entière,
Hélas, une épée est enfoncée.
