-  Transcription: Jesucristo me acompañe/y el santo ángel de nuestra guarda,/para hacer el ejercicio/del camino y las tres caídas./Recuerda, Padre querido,/con tu fina voluntad,/porque este es el primer paso,/la primera caída que da./Segundo padecimiento/de Jesús atormentado,/hoy lo vemos sin aliento,/herido y ensangrentado./¡Qué espejo tan lucido,/el que mi Dios nos ha dado,/en este amargo camino/con las tres caídas que ha dado!

-  Transcription: May Jesus Christ accompany me/and our holy guardian angel,/to do the exercise/of the road and the three falls./Remember, beloved Father,/with your holy will,/because this is the first step,/the first fall he gives./Second suffering/of tormented Jesus,/today we see him without breath/wounded and bloody./What a lucid mirror/which God has given us,/on this bitter road/with the three falls he has given!
