INcipit lamentatio
Jeremiae prophetae
 
ALeph.
 
QUomodo sedet sola ciuitas plena populo
facta est quasi vidua
domina gentium.
 
PRinceps prouinciarum
facta est sub tributo.
 
BEth.
 
PLorans plorauit in nocte, et lachrimae eius
in maxlis eius.
 
HJerusalem, 
COnuertere ad Dominum Deum tuum.
 

Translation

Here beginneth the Lamentation
of Jeremiah the Prophet.
 
Aleph.
 
How does the city sit alone that was full of people.
She has become as a widow,
she that was great among nations:
the princess among the provinces
has become tributary.
 
Beth.
 
She weeps weeping in the night,
and her tears lie on her cheeks.
 
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
return to the Lord thy God.
 
[Translation: Nancho Álvarez]
