Jubilate Deo omnis terra
cantate omnes
jubilate et psallite
quoniam suadente Paulo, Carolus et Franciscus,
principes terrae, convenerunt in unum
et pax de caelo descendit.

O felix aetas
O felix Paule
O vos felices principes
qui christiano populo pacem tradidistis
Vivat Paulus!
Vivat Carolus!
Vivat Franciscus!
vivant simul, et pacem nobis donent in aeternum!

Rejoice in the Lord, all ye lands,
sing everyone,
rejoice and play the psaltery,
because persuaded by Paul, Charles and Francis,
the princes of the earth have united,
and peace has descended from Heaven.

O happy age,
O happy Paul,
O ye happy princes
who have delivered peace to the Christian people.
Long live Paul!
Long live Charles!
Long live Francis!
Long may they live together, and may they give us peace for ever!
