-  Transcription: Dividido el corazón/llora María sin consuelo,/la noche pasó en desvelo,/contemplando en la pasión./En amarga soledad/suspira vuestra paloma/por ver si acaso se asoma/de mi Dios la claridad./En una noche tan triste/mi Dios me has desamparado,/sola y sin ti me he quedado./Hijo mío, ¿Dónde te fuistes?/¡Ay, Jesús, dueño del alma,/ay, que me muero de dolor!/Ay, que me mata el amor . . .
-  Transcription: English Translation
-  Transcription: Her heart divided /Mary cries without solace,/the night she spent awake,/contemplating the passion./In bitter solitude/our dove sighs/to see if clarity/comes from my God./In a night so sad/my God you have forsaken me,/alone and without you I remain,/my Son, where have you gone?/Oh, Jesus, master of my soul,/oh, I am dying of pain! /Oh, love is killing me . . .
