Original text and translations
Where were you when I made the earth? Where were you when I made the sky?
When the stars sang together, and the angels cried for joy,
When I stretched my hand and said, "Let there be light!"
Hear me, Lord! May I also speak? Teach me, Lord, may I understand.
I had heard you with my ears but now I see you with my eyes.
I regard myself as ashes and I see myself as dust,
But I will rise again with those whom my God raises up.
Where were you when I bore the cross? Where were you when I died on it?
When the angels wept in anguish, and the earth convulsed in grief
When I bowed my head and died so you might live?
