The Mother and Child [With Arms Outstretched] image is on the left hand side inside the card and the text of the right reads, 'The joy of our heart is ceased; our dancing is turned into mourning. The crown is fallen from our head; woe to us, because we have sinned. But thou, O Lord, shall remain for ever; thy throne from generation to generation. Convert us, O Lord, to thee, and we shall be converted; renew our days, as from the beginning.' Unsigned. $850.
