De cruce deponitur hora vespertina,
Fortitudo latuit in mente divina.
Talem mortem subiit vitae medicina,
Heu, corona gloriae iacuit supina.

He is taken down from the cross at the evening hour, the strength hid in the mind of God.
Such a death suffered (our) life's medicine, alack, the crown of glory laid thrown down.
