Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Vae nobis quia peccavimus,
defecit gaudium cordis nostri,
versus et in luctum chorus noster,
cecidit corona capitis nostri.

English.png English translation

Woe to us who have sinned,
The Joy of our hearts is gone,
Our dancing has been turned to mourning,
The crown has fallen from our heads.

Translation by James Gibb
