Patris sapientia, 
Veritas divina, 
Deus homo captus est
Hora matutina.

Notis a discipulis
Cito derelictus,
A Iudaeis traditus,
Venditus [et] afflictus.

English translation: 

Wisdom of the Father, divine truth, the God who became man was made prisoner in the morning hour.

He was quickly abandoned by the known disciples, he was betrayed by the Jews, sold and beaten down.
