Language: Latin

Quam dulce, quam laudabile,
Modisque multis utile!
Mens una cum concordibus,
Vires ministrat fratribus.

Ut mite Balsamum fluit,
Ad ima cum pedum ruit,
Aronis altem verticem -
Barbamque tingens simplicem.

Ut res Sionis ardua
Irrorat atque pascua,
Hermonis aptat usibus:
Sic alma pax est fratribus.

His namque dia dextera,
Promissa donat munera -
His capta cuncta prospere -
Jubeh Jehovah cedere!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
