Ah! You sinful people, why fare thus?
For sweat and blood he may not see.
Alas! Holy prophet, Christ Jhesus,
Careful is my heart for thee.
And she wipes his face with her kerchief.
Veronica, thy wiping does me ease.
My face is clean that was black to see.
I shall keep those from all suffering
That look on thy veil and remember me.
Ciclo di N-Town, Play 32, The Procession to Calvary and the Crucifixion of Christ, vv. 41-48. Probabilmente la città è Coventry, Inghilterra.
