O triste spectaculum,
O crudeli supplicium,
Mortis turpissima condemnatur Jesus.
Ululate, plangite et clamate
Quia occisus est Salvator noster.

English.png English translation

What a sad spectacle,
What cruel punishment,
Jesus is condemned to a shameful death.
Wail, lament and cry
Because our Saviour was killed.
