Maria ging aus wandern
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
Maria ging aus wandern,
so fern ins fremde Land,
bis sie Gott den Herren fand.

Sie hat ihn schon gefunden
wohl vor des Herodes Haus,
er sah so betrüblich aus.

Das Kreuz, das musst' er tragen
nach Jerusalem vor die Stadt,
wo er gemartet ward.

Was trug er auf seinem Haupte?
Ein' scharfe Dornenkron';
das Kreuz, das trägt er schon.

Daran soll man bedenken,
ein jeder jung or alt,
dass das Himmelreich
leidet Gewalt!

La peregrinación de María
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
María salió a vagar
muy lejos, en tierra extraña,
hasta que encontró a Dios nuestro Señor.

Lo encontró por fin
justo ante la casa de Herodes.
Parecía desconsolado.

Tenía que acarrear la cruz
hasta Jerusalén, fuera de la ciudad,
donde fue martirizado.

¿Qué llevaba en la cabeza?
Una corona de aceradas espinas.
La cruz ya la cargaba.

¡Considere todo el mundo,
jóvenes o viejos,
que el Reino de los cielos
sufre violencia!
