Lyrics: Harry Robert Wilson - Music: Miklos Rosza
(from "King of Kings"  )
Miklos Rosza Chorus and Orchestra
Pietà, Pietà, Pietà,
At the cross her station keeping,
Sadly Mary stood weeping,
And through her heart His sorrow sharing,
All his bitter anguish was bearing.
How sad and sore distressed now was she the mother blessed,
Watching by Him until the last.
For lo! The piercing sword had passed,
In the tomb gently laid.
Oh, such sorrow, such sorrow, Holy maid.
Pietà, At the sepulchre unfolding
In the arms ever holding
Thy dear Son with devotion,
We worship Thee in deep emotion.
Pietà, Pietà, Amen.
