Intro: G D7
1. Jest zakątek na tej ziemi
Gdzie powracać każdy chce,
Gdzie króluje Jej Oblicze,
Na Nim cięte rysy dwie.
Wzrok ma smutny, zatroskany,
Jakby chciała prosić cię,
D D7 G D7
Byś w matczyną Jej opiekę oddał się.
Ref.: Madonno, Czarna Madonno,
D7 G D7
Jak dobrze Twym dzieckiem być!
O, pozwól, Czarna Madonno,
D7 G (D7)
W ramiona Twoje się skryć! 2x
2. W Jej ramionach znajdziesz spokój
I uchronisz się od zła,
Bo dla wszystkich Swoich dzieci
Ona Serce czułe ma.
I opieką cię otoczy, gdy Jej serce
Gdy powtórzysz Jej z radością słowa te:
3. Dziś, gdy wokół nas niepokój ,
Gdzie się człowiek schronić ma,
Gdzie ma pójść, jak nie do Matki,
Która ukojenie da?
Więc błagamy, o Madonno,
Skieruj wzrok na dzieci swe
I wysłuchaj, jak śpiewamy prosząc Cię

The Black Madonna of Częstochowa (Polish: Czarna Madonna or Matka Boska Częstochowska, Latin: Imago thaumaturga Beatae Virginis Mariae Immaculatae Conceptae, in Claro Monte ), also known as Our Lady of Częstochowa, is a revered icon of the Virgin Mary housed at the Jasna Góra Monastery in Częstochowa, Poland. Several Pontiffs have recognised the venerated icon, beginning with Pope Clement XI who issued a Canonical Coronation to the image on 8 September 1717 via the Vatican Chapter.
The icon of Our Lady of Częstochowa has been intimately associated with Poland for the past 600 years. Its history prior to its arrival in Poland is shrouded in numerous legends which trace the icon's origin to St. Luke who painted it on a cedar table top from the house of the Holy Family. The same legend holds that the painting was discovered in Jerusalem in 326 by St. Helena, who brought it back to Constantinople and presented it to her son, Constantine the Great.
The legend concerning the two scars on the Black Madonna's right cheek is that the Hussites stormed the Pauline monastery in 1430, plundering the sanctuary. Among the items stolen was the icon. After putting it in their wagon, the Hussites tried to get away but their horses refused to move. They threw the portrait down to the ground and one of the plunderers drew his sword upon the image and inflicted two deep strikes. When the robber tried to inflict a third strike, he fell to the ground and writhed in agony until his death. Despite past attempts to repair these scars, they had difficulty in covering up those slashes as the painting was done with tempera infused with diluted wax.
Another legend states that, as the robber struck the painting twice, the face of the Virgin Mary started to bleed; in a panic, the scared Hussites retreated and left the painting. - Wiki
