-  Transcription: (Rael gave it this title)/El me tiene un gran dolor/cuando creyendo caminar/por la calle de la amargura,/tres Marías lo lloraban./Oh mira la Magdalena,/la otra la Marta fue hermana,/y la otra la Virgen pura,/la que más dolor pasaba./Lleva un clarín por delante/publicando el padecer,/y una muy ronca trompeta/para ofrenda también./Caminar la Virgen pura/en una fresca mañana,/se topó con Juan Bautista/en esta manera le habla . . .
-  Transcription: English Translation
-  Transcription: He has for me a great pain/when while trying to walk/down the street of bitterness,/three Marys cried for him./Oh look at the Magdalene,/the other the sister of Martha,/and the other the Virgin pure,/she whose sorrow was greatest./A bugle goes in front /announcing the suffering,/and a very hoarse trumpet/as an offering as well./The Virgin pure was walking/on a cool morning,/and ran into John the Baptist/and spoke to him this way . . .
