Hora prima ductus est
<Iesus> ad pilatum
Falsis testimoniis
Multum accusatum.

In collo percutiunt
Manibus ligatum,
Vultum eius conspuunt
Lumen caeli gratum.

English translation: 

At the first hour Jesus was brought before Pilatus and he was heavily accused by false witnesses.

Him, whose hands are tied, they strike down with fists, they spit on God's countenance, gracious light of Heaven.
