Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Qui consolabatur me recessit a me.
Quaero quod volui et non invenio.
Fundunt oculi mei lacrimas quia repletus sum amaritudine.

English.png English translation

He who was to console me has left me.
I seek what I wish for, but don't find it.
My eyes pour out with tears for I am filled with bitterness.
