Vide domine afflictionem nostram,
et in tempore maligno ne derelinquas nos.
Plusquam Hierusalem facta est desolata civitas electa in milibus,
et iocunditas nostra in amaritudine conversa est tanquam viduae
et filiae earum squalidae tanquam leprosi facti sumus,
facti sunt inimici nec ipsi montes fugam suscipient
sed veni Domine et noli tardare
et revoca dispersos in civitatem tuam.
