Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani,

My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?

Why hast Thou forsaken me?

 

My heart is melted away within me, I am poured out like water.

My heart is melted away within me, I am poured out like water.

 

Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani,

My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?

Why hast Thou forsaken me?

 

They pierced my hands, they pierced my feet. 

I can count all my bones; they stare at me and mock me.

 

Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani,

My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?

Why hast Thou forsaken me?
