Libretto/text

1. Stabat mater dolorosa
Juxta crucem lacrymosa
Dum pendebat Filius.

Cujus animam gementem
Contristatem et dolentes
Pertransivit gladius.

2. O quam tristis et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta
Mater unigeniti.

Quae morebat et dolebat
et tremebat cum videbat
Nati poenas inclyti.

3. Quis est homo qui non fleret
Christi Matrem si videret
In tanto supplicio?

Quis posset non contristari
Piam Matrem contemplari
Dolentem cum Filio?

Pro peccatis suae gentis
Vidit Jesum in tormentis
Et flagellis subditum.

Vidit suum dulcem natum
Morientem desolatum,
Dum emisit spiritum.

4. Eia Mater fons amoris,
Me sentire vim doloris
Fac ut tecum lugeam.

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

5. Sancta Mater istud agas
Crucifixi fige plagas
Corde meo valide.

Tui nati vulnerati
Jam dignati pro me pati
Poenas mecum divide.

6. Fac me vere tecum flere
Crucifixo condolere
Donec ego vixero.

Juxta crucem tecum stare
Te libenter sociare
In planctu desidero.

7. Virgo, virginum praeclara
Mihi jam non sis amara
Fac me tecum plangere.

Virgo, virginum praeclara
Mihi jam non sis amara
Fac me tecum plangere.

Fac ut portem Christi mortem
Passionis ejus sortem
Et plagas recolere.

8. Fac me plagis vulnerari
Cruce hac inebriari
Ob amorem Filii.

Inflammatus et accensus
Per te Virgo sim defensus
In die judicii.

9. Christe, cum sit hinc exire,
da per Matrem me venire
ad palmam victoriae.

Quando corpus morietur
Fac ut animae donetur
Paradisi gloria. Amen.
