This poignant song of solidarity and lament can be used throughout the year as we sing of the suffering that cries out for justice in our world. The text of the four-part refrain is centered on the cross, reminding us that Christ journeys with us in our suffering. As Mary stood by the cross, we too are called to stand with those who suffer the many crosses of life.

For cantor or soloist.
