R.†††††††† My God, My God! Why have you abandoned me!

 

All day long I call to you, and yet you answer not a word.

All night I cry for your relief, but still my grief remains unheard.

 

R.

 

You brought me from my motherís womb when first I saw the light of day.

You held me safe, and secure, more than the breasts on which I lay.

 

R

 

I am like water pouring out, and all my bones are racked with pain.

Now they have pierced my hands and feet, I can number all my bones!
