-  Transcription: Venir, almas devotas,/venir, venir, venir,/y a la más triste madre/ayudarle a sentir./Al pie de un verde leño,/que es mata de carmín,/como tortolita triste,/yo me contemplo allí./De noche lo prendieron/como ladrón y a mí./¿Cómo quedaría yo/al verlo andar así?/Con golpes y empellones/lo pasearon allí,/le ataron sus santas manos./¡Qué dolor para mí!/Al cuello le pusieron/una cadena así,/tan gruesa y tan pesada/¡Qué calor por ti?/Las piedras quebrantaron/corazones allí,/y yo como piedra inmoble/más firme en el sentir.
-  Transcription: English Translation
-  Transcription: Come, devoted souls, /come, come, come, /to the saddest of mothers/to help her mourn./At the foot of a green timber,/which is a plant of carmine,/like a sad little dove, /I contemplate myself there./At night they arrested him/as a thief and me also./How would I be /upon seeing him that way?/With blows and shoves/they paraded him there,/they tied his holy hands./What pain for me! /On his neck they put /a chain this way,/so thick and so heavy./How hot for you? /The rocks broke/hearts there, and me/like an immovable stone/more firm in my suffering.
