Original text and translations
Send forth thy sighs, the witnesses of woe.
Pour down thy plaints, the signs of thy unrest.
Let trickling tears from forth thy fountains flow,
For these same weeds become thy calling best.
Let sobs, let sighs, let plaints, let tears and all
Bear witness just of this thy fatal fall.
