Edition notes: All original note values are preserved. Prefatory staves indicate original clefs and pitches. All original symbols and accidentals are shown (except b-sharps, which have been replaced with modern b-naturals) - although the half-sharp sign has been replaced with the modern equivalent. Any accidentals in brackets are purely cautionary. Dashed slurs, dotted barlines, and text underlay in Italics are all added editorially, as well as any comments in square brackets. The grammar of the text has been regularised, and notes within the same syllable have been beamed according to modern convention. Only continuo figures in the original manuscript have been included.

Lagrime amare, all'anima che langue
Soccorrete pietose; il dente rio
Già v'impresse d'inferno il crudel angue,
E mortifera piaga, ohimè, v'apr'io.
Ben vuol sanarla il Redentore esangue,
Mà idarno sparso il pretioso rio
Sarà per lei di quel beato sangue
Senza il doglioso humor del pianto mio.
Sù dunque, amare lagrime correte
A gl'occhi ogn'or da questo cor pentito,
Versate pur, che di voi sole hò sete.
Se tanto il liquor vostro, è in Ciel gradito,
Dirò di voi, che voi quell'acque sete,
Ch'uscir col sangue da Giesù ferito.
