Original text and translations
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!
