The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein

XLIX.

The Beggar

Miser ego homo! Quis nie liberabit de corpore mortis huius? — Rom. vii.

THE BEGGAR.
The Beggar, lying on straw outside the city, cries in vain for Death.

Qui hors la chair veult en Christ viure

Ne craint mort, mais dit un mortel,

Helas, qui me rendra deliure

Pouure homme de ce corps mortel?
