Of all the fishes in the sea
our Lord chose the lowly sailcat
to remind us of his misery.
His body on the cross is outlined,
the hilt of the sword
which as plunged into his side
is clearly defined.
Look at the back of the fishes bone
where the Roman shield is shown.
When you shake the cross
you will hear the dice being tossed
for our Lord's blood-stained dress,
those who can hear them
--- will be blessed.
