Durch der Mutter bange Seele,
ach durch ihre ganze Seele,
ach, drang ein Schwert,
durchdrang ein Schwert.

Wer wird Zähren sanften Mitleids
nicht mit diesen Frommen weinen,
die dich, Herr, im Tode sahn?
 
Wer mit ihnen nicht verstummen,
wer mit ihnen nicht verstummen,
die dich, Herr, im Tode sahn.
 
Wer wird Tränen sanften Mitleids
nicht mit diesen Frommen weinen1?
Wer mit ihnen nicht verstummen,

Wer wird sich nicht innig freuen,
dass der Gottversöhner ihnen,
Himmel, deinen Vorschmack gab,
ach, dass Jesus Christus ihnen,
Himmel, deinen Vorschmack gab.
