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!
