De cruce deponitur
Hora vespertina,
Fortitudo latuit
In mente divina.

Talem mortem subiit
Vitae medicina,
Heu, corona gloriae
Iacuit supina

English translation: 

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.
