Where are you my most sweet mother? Your motherly love do I seek fervently.
My eyes are full of bitter tears, I have nobody to wipe them off.
I asked for a drink of water, but the wicked gave me vinegar instead.
Armenian lyrics (in Latin characters):
Oor es mayr eem kaghtsur yev anoush, ser dznogheet zees ayreh.
Lutsan ack eem tarun ardasvok, voch zok ouneem vor srpeh.
Tchour khntretsee, katsakh arpee hanoreenats tseraneh.
