Dear Maker of the starry skies
Light never lost by faithful eyes
Christ the Salation sent to all
Be near Thy servants when they call

Thy love that pitied from on high
A guilty race foredoomed to die
Was fain that sentence to repeal
Those failing energies to heal
Dear Maker Of The Starry Skies
By The Blood That Flowed From Thee
      (Tune 2)
By the Blood that flowed from Thee
In Thy bitter agony  By the scourge
so meekly borne By Thy purple robe of scorn

Chorus
Jesus Savior hear our cry
Thou wert suff'ring once as we
Hear the loving litany
We Thy children sing to Thee

By the thorns that crowned Thy Head
By Thy scepter of a reed
By the scourge so meekly borne
Weighed beneath Thy cross of woe
Stabat Mater
Stabat Mater dolorosa
Justa crucem lacrimosa
Sum pendebat Filius

Cujus animam gementem
Contristatem et dolentem
Per transivit gladius

O quam tristis et afflicta
Fuit illa benedicta
Mater Unigeniti
At The Cross Her Station Keeping
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 has passed

O that blessed one grief laden
Blessed Mother, Blessed Maiden
Mother of the All blest one.
Glory Be To Jesus
Glory be to Jesus Who in bitter pains
Poured for me the life Blood From His sacred Veins

Grace and life eternal In that Blood I find
Blest be His compassion Infinitely kind

Blest through endless ages Be the precious stream
Which from endless torment Doth the world redeem

Thee the fainting spirit Drinks of life her fill
There as in a fountain  Laves herself at will

Jesu Salvator Mundi
Jesu Salvator Mundi tuis famulis subveni
Quos pretioso sanguine
Quos pretioso sanguine redemisti
O Bone Jesu!
O Bone Jesu miserere nobis
Quia tu creasti nos tu redemisti nos
Sanguine tuo pretiosissime
