Stabat Mater Hymn Prayer


Translation by Edward Caswall

Lyra Catholica (1849)



Stabat Mater dolorosa

juxta Crucem lacrimosa,

Dum pendebat Filius.


Cuius animam gementem,

Contristatam et dolentem

Pertransivit gladius.


O quam tristis et afflicta

Fuit illa benedicta,

Mater Unigeniti!


Quae moerebat et dolebat,

pia Mater, dum videbat

Nati poenas inclyti.


Quis est homo qui non fleret,

Matrem Christi si videret

In tanto supplicio?


Quis non posset contristari

Christi Matrem contemplari

Dolentem cum Filio?


Pro peccatis suae gentis

Vidit Iesum in tormentis,

Et flagellis subditum.


Vidit suum dulcem Natum

Moriendo desolatum,

Dum emisit spiritum.


Eia, Mater, fons amoris

Me sentire vim doloris

Fac, ut tecum lugeam.


Fac, ut ardeat cor meum

In amando Christum Deum

Ut sibi complaceam.


Sancta Mater, istud agas,

Crucifixi fige plagas

Cordi meo valide.


Tui Nati vulnerati,

Tam dignati pro me pati,

Poenas mecum divide.


Fac me tecum pie flere,

Crucifixo condolere,

Donec ego vixero.


Iuxta Crucem tecum stare,

Et me tibi sociare

In planctu desidero.


Virgo virginum praeclara,

Mihi iam non sis amara,

Fac me tecum plangere.


Fac  ut portem Christi mortem,

Passionis fac consortem,

Et plagas recolere.


Fac me plagis vulnerari,

Fac me Cruce inebriari,

Et cruore Filii.


Flammis ne urar succensus,

Per te, Virgo, sim defensus

In die iudicii.


Christe, cum sit hinc exire,

Da per Matrem me venire

Ad palmam victoriae.


Quando corpus morietur,

Fac, ut animae donetur

Paradisi gloria.
