Joel 2:12, 17 [Latin]

12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

In ieiunio et fletu (from Cantiones Sacrae, 1575) (alternate spelling: In jejunio et fletu) by Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)
