With all my weight of woes unspoken
Let me before thee bend the knee,
Thou hope of weary hearts and broken,
Madonna, show thy grave to me.
On Thee I call,
The tears are falling,
From out mine eyes in grateful flow,
And heav'nly voices hear I calling,
Do not despair, O Child of woe.

Within my breast echoes their message,
The flow'r of faith now blows again,
In warm devotions holy presage
As clouds of night dissolves my pain
I hear a sound of angelic voices,
The last of earthly fetters breaks,
My longing heart,
To heav'n upwinging
With thee in light and joy awakes!
