Première leçon de ténèbres du Jeudi...

Language: Latin

Heth. Cogitavit Dominus dissipare murum
filiae Sion; tetendit funiculum suum, et non
avertit manum suam a perditione; luxitque
antemurale, et murus pariter dissipatus est.

Teth. Defixae sunt in terra portae ejus,
perdidit et contrivit vectes ejus; regem ejus
et principes ejus in gentibus: non est lex, et
prophetae ejus non invenerunt visionem a Domino.

Jod. Sederunt in terra, conticuerunt senes
filiae Sion; consperserunt cinere capita sua,
accincti sunt ciliciis; abjecerunt in terram
capita sua virgines Jerusalem.

Caph. Defecerunt prae lacrymis oculi mei,
conturbata sunt viscera mea; effusum est in
terra jecur meum super contritione filiae
populi mei, cum deficeret parvulus et
lactens in plateis oppidi.
