Latin.png Latin text

Quis dabit oculis nostris fontem lachrimarum?
Et plorabimus die ac nocte coram domino?
Britannia, quid ploras? Musica, cur siles?
Francia, cur inducta lugubri veste, moerore
consumeris?

Heu nobis, domine, defecit Anna,
gaudium cordis nostri.
Conversus est in luctum chorus noster,
cecidit corona capitis nostri.

Ergo ejulate pueri, plorate sacerdotes,
ululate senes, lugete cantores,
plangite nobiles, et dicite:
Anna requiescat in pace.
Amen.
