Full text: 

Hora sexta Iesus est
In cruce clavatus
Et est cum latronibus
Morti deputatus.

Prae tormentis sitiens
Felle saturatus
Agnus crimen diluens
Sic ludificatus.

English translation: 

At the sixth hour Jesus was nailed to the cross and sentenced to death with the thieves.

Thirsty for the tortures, filled with bitter poison, the lamb that was scorned in this way washed away the crime.
