How are the mighty fall’n in the midst of the battle.
O Jonathan, thou wast slain in thy high places.
O Jonathan, woe is me for thee.
My brother Jonathan, very kind hast thou been to me:
Thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women.
How are the mighty fall’n, and the weapons of war destroyed.
