This song to Mary opened our pilgrimage. We sang it in St. Mary's church, Willesden, London, with a Black Madonna shrine, a holy well and a food bank.

The poem tells of Mary carrying Jesus ‘under her heart’ (in her womb), and how as they walk together through the woods, the thorns all bloom as roses.

Was trug Maria unter ihrem Herzen,
Kyrie Eleison.
Ein kleines Kindlein ohne Schmerzen,
das trug Maria unter ihrem herzen,
Jesus und Maria.

Die Rosen haben dornen getragen,
Kyrie Eleison,
als das Kindlein durch den Wald getragen,
die Rosen haben Dornen getragen,
Jesus und Maria.
