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!
