Samuel Barber - The Crucifixion

  • Artist: Samuel Barber (Samuel Osborne Barber II)
  • Also performed by: Barbara Bonney
  • Translations: Arabic

The Crucifixion

At the cry of the first bird
They began to crucify Thee.
O cheek like a swan!
It [were] not right ever to cease lamenting.
It was like the parting of day from night.
Ah! though sore the suffering
Put upon the body of Mary's Son,
Sorer to Him was the grief
Which for His sake
Came upon His Mother.

There was already a page for this artist so I moved this song there.
