My arrangement of this lovely German Advent carol, which I looked up after it was mentioned in a novel I was reading – “The Ragged Edge of Night” by Olivia Hawker. Excellent book and beautiful carol!
You can hear the arrangement here: https://youtu.be/50NBgPEQWzc
“Mary wandered through a wood of thorns, Kyrie, Eleison Mary wandered through a wood of thorns, which was leafless for seven years. Jesus and Mary Who did Mary bear beneath her bosom? Kyrie, Eleison A little babe without pain, Whom Mary bore beneath her bosom. Jesus and Mary The thorns had roses there, Kyrie, Eleison As the babe was carried through the woods there were roses with thorns on them. Jesus and Mary”
