see 1st verse
you are capable of destroying the sins of those who bow to you
you wander to receive alms in the white dead skull
you are able to smear you body with the ash of people who died on account of diseases and other reasons.
you desired riding on a bull.
you adorned your head on all side with white skulls;
arthritic complaint is inflicting excruciating pain if we try to live becoming a slave to you having decided so.
please be gracious enough to cure me of it.
I was formerly your slave.
