Quid ultra tibi facere, Vinea mea, potui? Quid potes mihi reddere, Qui pro te cedi, conspui, Et crucifigi volui? Et tu pro tanto munere, Baptismi fracto federe, Presumis vice mutui Me rursum crucifigere Et habere ostentui.
Quid, quod ipsa religio Crucem fert in angaria Et, cum datur occasio, Recurrit cum letitia Ad pepones et allia? Simulato negotio, A plangentis officio Redit ad secularia Qui, derelicto pallio Fugerat ab Egyptia.
At vos qui gloriamini In opibus illicitis, Qui vobis crucem Domini Prodesse non permittitis, Qui Lazari et Divitis Exemplo non terremini, Cum ipso puniemini. Quicquid tamen egeritis, Dum licet convertimini Ad me, et salvi eritis.
What more for thee, O my vineyard, Could I have done? What will you be able to give back to me, Who has died for you, and was willing To be reviled and crucified? And in return for such a gift you have broken The covenant of baptism, And you have presumed once again To crucify me And to hold me up as a spectacle.
Why is it that religion itself, because It bears the Cross in its service, Whenever the chance is given Runs back with joy To melons and garlic? In a pretence of lawful duty, He who once threw off his cloak And fled from the Egyptian woman Returns to the profane From the office of lamentation.
But you who glory In forbidden riches, You who do not allow The Cross of the Lord to do good, Who fear not the example Of Dives and Lazarus, With him will be punished. However, whatever you do, As long as you turn to me, You will be saved.
