-  Transcription: Let us help, dear souls/to grieve for your Father,/who is Jesus the Nazarene,/Son of the Virgin Mother./On Holy Thursday in the afternoon,/when they arrested my Jesus, /they broke the heart /of Mary, his sweet Mother./-Goodbye, Mother of my life,/says Jesus with love,/-they are taking me to torture/for the blame of the sinner./On Good Friday in the afternoon/Pilate sentenced him,/in the presence of the Virgin,/who saw him read the sentence./-Goodbye, Jesus of my life,/treasure of my heart,/in public they sentenced you/like an evil doing man.
