Quis dabit oculis
Language: Latin 
Quis dabit oculis nostris fontem lacrymarum et plorabimus coram Domino? 
Germania quid ploras, Musica cur siles? 
Austria cur induta veste reproba moerore consumeris? 
Heu nobis Domine, defecit nobis Maximilianus! 
Gaudium cordis nostri conversum est in luctum; 
cecidit corona capitis nostri. 
Ergo ululate pueri, plorate sacerdotes, 
lugite cantores, plangite milites, 
et dicite: Maximilianus requiescat in pace.
