Wrong spelling, it is: "Chcesz deska Matko?'

Berni23, thanks for the reply. My brother-in-law is a cantor and has been requested to sing the song at a funeral. He has the music but is unsure of the pronunciation of the words.
can you phonetically provide them to me? Greg Hojnowski

Berni23 is pulling your leg. 'Serdeczna Matko' can be sung on various occasions: weddings, funerals, Marian devotions, etc.

SERDECZNA MATKO
Serdeczna Matko, opiekunko ludzi,
Niech Cię płacz sierot do litości zbudzi.
// Wygnańcy Ewy do Ciebie wołamy:
Zmiłuj się zmiłuj, niech się nie tułamy. //

Zasłużyliśmy, to prawda, przez złości,
By nas Bóg karał rózgą surowości.
// Lecz kiedy Ojciec rozgniewany siecze,
Szczęśliwy kto się do Matki uciecze. //

BELOVED MOTHER
Beloved Mother, guardian of the nation,
Hear orphans weeping in their supplication.
We are Eve’s exiles, do you hear us praying?
Show us your mercy when we begin straying.

We have sinned often over all the ages,
Hence we deserve God’s punishment that rages.
But when the Father strikes, be our defender,
Be our safe refuge, Mother dear and tender.

Thanks to all my new friends who responded. I've learned a lot. But mainly how dumb I am to not pursue my parents language. I intend to correct this in the near future.

Popular (non-scientific) phonetic transcription:
NOTE: Upper-ase syllables get the stress.

sare-DECH-nah MAHT-kaw, aw-pye-KOON-kah LOO-jee.
nyekh cheh pwahch SHA-rut daw lee-TUSH-chee ZBOO-jee.
vig-NINE-tsy EH-vi daw CHE-byeh vau-WAH-mi
ZMEE-wooy sheh ZMEE-wooy, nyekh sheh nyeh too-WAH-mi.

NOTE: the short e (liek that in such English words as let, get, bet, etc.) is often indicated above as eh. That is not to be pronounced like the trademark Canadian interjection 'eh' (ey).
