Weib, was weinest du? Wen suchest du?
Sie haben meinen Herren weggenommen, und ich weiss nicht, wo sie ihn hingeleget haben.
Rühre mich nicht an, denn ich bin noch nicht aufgefahren zu meinem Vater.
Ich fahre auf zu meinem Vater und zu eurem Vater, zu meinem Gott und zu eurem Gott.

English.png English translation

Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?
Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
Rabboni; (which is to say, Master).
Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father.
I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
