Absalon fili mi,
quis det ut moriar pro te, Absalon?
Non vivam ultra,
sed descendam in infernum plorans.

Absalon my son,
if only I had died instead of you, Absalon!
I shall live no more,
but go down to hell, weeping.

Absalon mijn zoon,
was ik maar gestorven in plaats van jij, Absolon!
Ik zal niet meer leven,
maar afdalen naar de hel, huilend.
