Latin.png Latin text

Clama, ne cesses, Syon filia:
Jerusalem fit Babylonia,
sub precio ponitur gracia,
sancta venduntur pro pecunia,
fons caritatis perit in prelatis,
nihil datur gratis in ecclesia!

English.png English translation

Shout incessantly, daughter of Sion,
that Jerusalem is transformed into Babylon,
indulgences are subjected to a price,
holiness is sold for money,
the fountain of charity dries amidst the prelates,
nothing is given for free by the Church!

Translation by Campelli
