Jesus meets his mother (Station 4_ Part 1)
words: Public Domain
music: (c) Bruce Benedict, 2011


I’m dying, Mother, dying now;
Please raise my aching head,
And fan my heated, burning brow,
Your boy will soon be dead.

Turn o’er my pillow once again,
And kiss my fevered cheek;
I’ll soon be freed from all the pain,
For now I am so weak.
