-  Transcription: A la muerte, pecador,/ya todo se acabará,/a la muerte, pecador,/el Señor te juzgará./La sibila y David dicen/que en aquel día de ira,/la gran máquina del mundo/se convertirá en ceniza./¡Cuán grande será el temor/cuando Cristo, con devisa/del juez venga a tomar cuenta/rigurosa de la vida!/Convocará una trompeta/terrible que será oída/en todo el mundo a los muertos/para que ante el trono asista./Llena la naturaleza/de espanto y la muerte misma,/verán cuando al ser juzgados/todo hombre que resucita.
-  Transcription: English Translation
-  Transcription: To death, sinner,/everything is ending,/to death, sinner,/the Lord will judge you./The sibyl and David say/that on that day of wrath,/the great engine of the world/will turn into ashes. /How great will be the fear/when Christ, with the emblem/of judges comes to take rigorous/account of life! /A trumpet will make the convocation/terrible will it be heard /in all the world the dead will hear/so they will appear at the throne./Nature will be full/of fear and death itself, /when to be judged/all mankind will be raised.
