STABAT MATER DOLOROSA


Stabat mater dolorosa
Juxta Crucem lacrimosa
Dum pendebat Filius.


Cujus animam gementem,
Contristatam et dolentem,
Pertransivit gladius.


O quam tristis et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta
Mater Unigeniti.


Quae maerebat et dolebat,
Pia Mater, dum videbat
Nati poenas 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 suae gentis
Vidit J`esum in tormentis
Et flagellis subditum.


Vidit suum dulcem natum
Moriendo desolatum
Dum emisit spiritum.


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


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


Sancta Mater, istud agas,
Crucifixi fige plagas,
Cordi meo valide.


Tui nati vulnerati,
Tam dignitati pro me pati,
Poenas mecum divide.


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


J
uxta crucem tecum stare,
Et me tibi sociare
In plancto desidero.


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


Fac, ut portem Christi mortem,
Passionis fac consortem
Et plagas recolere.


Fac me plagis vulnerari,
Fac me cruce inebriari
Et cruore Filii.


Flammis ne urar succensus
Per te, Virgo, sim defensus
In die iudicii.


Christe, cum sit hinc exire,
De per Matrem me venire
Ad palmam victoriae.


Quando corpus morietur,
Fac ut animae donetur
Paradisi gloria.

Amen. Alleluia.
