Latin.png Latin text

Felices verè faciunt, semperque beatos De vero,
& summo gaudia gaudia nata bono.
Nam mundi ex opibus brevis Edita,
perpetuæ semina mortis habet.

Non placeat vanis animum submittere rebus, onerare cibis.
Cor mundum & sapiens fructu virtutis alatur
Et Christi in nostro pectore regnet amor.

Quo semel impletus nunquam vacuabitur illo
Æterna æterni flumina fontis erunt.
