Ady Endre: A magyar messiások

Portre of Ady Endre

A magyar messiások (Hungarian)

Sósabbak itt a könnyek
S a fájdalmak is mások.
Ezerszer Messiások,
A magyar Messiások.

Ezerszer is meghalnak
S üdve nincs a keresztnek,
Mert semmit se tehettek,
Mert semmit se tehettek.


Source of the quotation

The magyar messiahs (English)

More bitter is our weeping,
different the griefs that try us.
A thousand times Messiahs
are the Magyar Messiahs.

A thousand times they perish,
unblest their crucifixion,
for vain was their affliction,
oh, vain was their affliction.
