Written at the Foot of a Crucifix

All ye that weep come unto One who weeps;
All ye that suffer come to One who cures;
All trembling hearts, be still; he pity keeps;
All passers-by, oh, tarry: he endures.

From Contemplations, Book III, 1842

another translation:

You who weep, come to this God, because he weeps.
You who suffer, come to him, because he cures.
You who tremble, come to him, because he smiles.
You who pass, come to him, because he endures.
