The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XXII.

The Priest, or Pastor

Der Pfarrherr.

Sum quidem & ego mortalis homo. — Sap. vii.

THE PRIEST.
He carries the host to a sick person. But Death precedes him as his sacristan.

Ie porte le sainct sacrement

Cuidant le mourant secourir,

Qui mortel suis pareillement.

Et comme luy me fault mourir.
