Texts and Translations

Quae est ista quae progreditur
quasi aurora consurgens,
pulchra ut luna, electa ut sol,
terribilis ut castrorum acies ordinata ?

French.png French translation

Qui est celle-ci qui s'avance comme l'aube naissante,
Belle comme la Lune, Resplendissante comme le Soleil,
Terrible comme un armée rangée en ordre de bataille.

Translation by Gabriel Thoorens
English.png English translation

Who is she that cometh like the dawn,
fair as the moon, bright as the sun,
terrible as an army prepared for battle?

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
Dutch.png Dutch translation

Wie is zij, die verschijnt,
oplichtend als de dageraad,
mooi als de maan, stralend als de zon
en ontzagwekkend als een leger in slagorde?

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge & Hanneke Pot
