Original text and translations
Exaudi nos Deus salutaris noster.
Spes omnium finium terræ et in mari longe.
There is an evening coming in
Across the fields one never seen before,
That lights no lamps.
Silken it seems of a distance, yet when it is drawn up over the knees and breast.
It brings no comfort.
Where has the tree gone, that locked earth to the sky?
What is under my hands, that I cannot feel?
What loads my hands?
