German.png German text

1  Maria durch ein' Dornwald ging.
Maria durch ein' Dornwald ging,
Der hat in sieben Jahr'n kein Laub getragen!
Jesus und Maria.
2  Was trug Maria unter ihrem Herzen?
Ein kleines Kindlein ohne Schmerzen,
Das trug Maria unter ihrem Herzen!
Jesus und Maria.

3  Da haben die Dornen Rosen getragen.
Als das Kindlein durch den Wald getragen,
Da haben die Dornen Rosen getragen!
Jesus und Maria.

English.png English translation

1  Maria walks amid the thorn,
Which for seven years no leaf hath born
She walks amid the wood of thorn
Jesus and Maria.

2  What ‘neath her heart does Mary bear?
A little child doth Mary bear
Beneath her heart he nestles there.
Jesus and Maria.

3  And as the two are passing near
Lo! Roses on the thorns appear!
Jesus and Maria.

Translation by Henry S. Drinker
