Latin.png Latin text

Ave, color vini clari,
Ave, sapor sine pari
Tua nos inebriari
Digneris potentia.

O quam felix creatura!
Quam perduxit vitis pura!
Omnis mensa sit secura
In tua presentia.

O quam placens in colore,
O quam fragrans in odore,
O quam sapidum in ore,
Dulce linguis vinculum!

Felix venter quem intrabis
Felix guttur quod rigabis,
O felix os, quod lababis
O beata labia.

Ergo, vinum collaudemus,
Potatores exaltemus,
Non potantes confundemus
In aeterna saecula. Amen!

English.png English translation

Hail, clear color of wine;
Hail, flavor without equal;
And your deeming power
To make us drunk.

O such happy creation!
Such preserver of pure vine!
Every table is assured
In your presence.

O so pleasing in color,
O so fragrant in odore,
O so tasty in the mouth,
Sweetly bonding with the tongue!

Happy is the stomach where you go,
Happy is the throat which you moisten,
O happy mouth that shakes,
O blessed lips.

Therefore, let us praise wine
Exalt the drinkers
Confound the non-drinkers
For ever and ever. Amen!
