Text

VNa hora non potuistis vigilare mecum,
qui exhortabamini mori pro me.
 
VEl Iudam non videtis, quomodo non dormit
sed festinat tradere me Iudeis.
 
QUid dormitis surgite et orate,
ne intretis in tentationem.
 
Vel Iudam non videtis, quomodo non dormit.
sed festinat tradere me Iudaeis?
 

Translation

Could you not watch one hour with me,
you that were eager to die for me?
Or do you not see Judas, how he sleeps not,
but makes haste to betray me to the Jews?
Why do you sleep? Arise and pray,
lest you fall into temptation.
Or do you not see Judas, how he sleeps not,
but makes haste to betray me to the Jews?
 
(Matthew 26, 40; Luke 22, 46)
 
[Translation: Nancho Álvarez]
