Fully expanded score for five voices. I am still not quite sure where to use slurs and where stemming to fit the words in something of this nature, but after some edits think this is at least now consistent – slurs just to group notes sung on a single syllable.
An English translation of the Latin text, from Lamentations of Jeremiah Chapter 5, runs:
5:1 Remember, O Lord, what has befallen us; behold, and see our disgrace!
5:2 Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, our homes to aliens.
5:3 We have become orphans, fatherless; our mothers are like widows.
5:4 We must pay for the water we drink, the wood we get must be bought.
5:5 With a yoke on our necks we are hard driven; we are weary, we are given no rest
This seems quite topical for Syria and other countries still.
