Text on facing page:
QUE PUIS-JE TE DIRE
POUR TE SOULAGER
A QUI TE COMPARER POUR TE CONSOLER
VIERGE DE SION?
CAR TA PLAIE EST GRANDE COMME LA MER!
QUI TE GUÉRIRAIT?

What shall I compare to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Zion? For thy breach is great like the sea: who can heal thee? (The Lamentations of Jeremiah)
