Text

ANimam meam dilectam tradidi
in manus iniquorum
et facta est mihi haereditas mea
sicut leo in silua
dedit contra me voces aduersarious meus
congregamini et properate ad deuorandum illum
posuerunt me in deserto solitudinis,
et luxit super me omnis terra.
 
QUia non est inuentus, qui me agnosceret
et faceret bene.
INsurrexerunt in me viri absque misericordia,
et non pepercerunt animae meae.
 

Translation

I delivered the soul that I had loved
into the hands of the wicked,
and my inheritance is become to me
like a lion in the forest.
My adversary spoke out against me saying:
Come together and make haste to devour him.
They placed me in a solitary desert,
and all the earth mourned for me:
Because there was none that would know me
and do good to me.
Men without mercy rose up against me,
and they spared not my life.
Because there was none that would know me
and do good to me.
