-  Transcription: Al pie de este santo altar/la Virgen quedó llorando/por Jesús, su Hijo divino,/y en su pasión contemplando./En su santísimo llanto,/clama y dice: -¡Ay mi Jesús!/¿Qué haré sola en este mundo,/quién lo baja de la cruz?/Ya murió el Padre Divino/y comienza a lamentar,/-En este amargo camino/no lo van a acompañar./Hincada al pie de la cruz,/alza los ojos y ve,/-¡Ay, mi Dios, ay mi Jesús!/¿En qué te amortajaré?/-¡Ay, Jesús, Hijo de mi alma, /ay de mí, mas ay de mí!/También me falta un sepulcro/en que sepultarte a ti.
-  Transcription: English Translation
-  Transcription: At the foot of this holy altar/the Virgin stayed crying/for Jesus, her divine Son,/contemplating his passion. /In her holiest crying, /she moans and says -Oh, my Jesus!/What will I do alone in this world,/who will lower you from the cross?/The Divine Father dies /and she starts lamenting,/-On this bitter road /they will not accompany him./Kneeling at the foot of the cross,/she raises her eyes and sees,/-Oh, my God, oh my Jesus!/In what will I wrap you?/-Oh, Jesus, Son of my soul, /woe is me, but woe is me!/I also need a tomb/in which to bury you.
