Quis mihi det lacrimis gemitus suspiria fletus
 ut valeam mortem plangere Christe tuam?
Heu modo quam saevis livent tua viscera plagis
 o sacrum horrendo vulnere pectus hiat.

Who will give me groans, sighs and tears to weep
so that I may lament your death, Christ?
It is pitiful to see how you writhe with gashes in your entrails
and what a horrible wound gapes in your sacred breast.
