*Plange quasi virgo plebs mea: ululate, pastores, in cinere et cilicio: Quia veniet dies Domini magna, et amara valde. Accingite vos, sacerdotes, et plangite ministri altaris, aspergite vos cinere. 

Lament like a maiden, my people. Howl you shepherds, in ashes and sackcloth. For the day of the Lord is coming: a great day, and very bitter. Make ready, and lament you priests. Howl, you ministers of the altar, cover yourselves with ashes.
