Texts and Translations

German.png German text

Da Jesus an dem Kreuze stund,
und ihm sein Leichnam war verwundt,
so gar mit bittern Schmerzen,
die sieben Wort die Jesus sprach,
betracht in deinem Herzen.

English.png English translation

When Jesus on the cross was found,
His body pierced with many a wound,
With torture very bitter;
The dying words, which He then spake,
With a still heart consider.

(tr. Moravian Hymn-Book, 1746)
