Amen.

By the first Adam's fatal sin

Came death upon the human race; In this new Adam doth new life begin, And everlasting grace.

For scarce the Father heard from heaven

The cry of his expiring Son, When in that cry our sins were all forgiven,

And boundless pardon won.

Henceforth, whoso in that dear blood Washeth, shall lose his every stain: And in immortal roseate beauty rob'd, An angel's likeness gain.

Only, run thou with courage on Straight to the goal set in the skies; He, who assists thy course, will give thee soon

The everlasting prize.

Father supreme! vouchsafe that we, For whom thine only Son was slain, And whom thy Holy Ghost doth sanctify,

May heavenly joys attain.
Amen.

R. Deo grátias.

Stabat Mater dolorosa
Juxta crucem lacrymosa,
Dum pendebat Filius.
Cujus animam gementem,
Contristatam, et dolentem,
Pertransivit gladius.
O quam tristis, et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta

Mater Unigeniti!
Quæ mærebat, et dolebat,
Pia Mater, dum videbat

Nati pœnas inclyti.

Quis est homo, qui non fleret,
Matrem Christi si videret

In tanto supplicio ?
Quis non posset contristari,
Christi Matrem contemplari
Dolentem cum Filio?
Pro peccatis suæ gentis
Vidit Jesum in tormentis,

Et flagellis subditum.
Vidit suum dulcem natum
Moriendo desolatum,
Dum emisit spiritum.

Ry. Thanks be to God.

HYMN.

At the cross her station keeping,
Stood the mournful Mother weeping,
Close to Jesus to the last:
Through her heart, his sorrow sharing,
All his bitter anguish bearing,

Now at length the sword had pass'd.
Oh, how sad and sore distress'd
Was that mother highly blest
Of the sole-begotten One!
Christ above in torment hangs ;
She beneath beholds the pangs
Of her dying glorious Son.
Is there one who would not weep,
Whelm'd in miseries so deep

Christ's dear Mother to behold?
Can the human heart refrain
From partaking in her pain,

In that mother's pain untold?
Bruis'd, derided, curs'd, defil'd,
She beheld her tender child

All with bloody scourges rent; For the sins of his own nation, Saw him hang in desolation,

Till his spirit forth he sent.

Eia Mater fons amoris,
Me sentire vim doloris

Fac, ut tecum lugeam.
Fac, ut ardeat cor meum
In amando Christum Deum,
Ut sibi complaceam.

Amen.

. Ora pro nobis, Virgo dolorosissima.

R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Make my soul to glow and melt
With the love of Christ my Lord.
Amen.
