The Lamentations

    The Deserted City

  1. "How lonely sits the citythat was full of people!How like a widow has she become,she that was great among the nations!She that was a princess among the citieshas become a vassal."
  2. "She weeps bitterly in the night,tears on her cheeks;among all her loversshe has none to comfort her;all her friends have dealt treacherously with her,they have become her enemies."
  3. "Judah has gone into exile because of afflictionand hard servitude;she dwells now among the nations,but finds no resting place;her pursuers have all overtaken herin the midst of her distress."
