Latin.png Latin text

Dicunt infantes Domino laudes,
trucidati ab Herode, occisi praedicant,
quod vivi non poterant;
licuit sanguine loqui,
quibus lingua non licuit;
miscent cum Domino colloquia,
quibus humana negata sunt verba.

German.png German translation

Die Kleinkinder sagen dem Herrn Lob,
hingemetzelt von Herodes, erschlagen verkündigen sie,
was sie lebend nicht konnten;
es war [denen] vergönnt, mit dem Blut zu sprechen,
denen mit der Zunge [zu sprechen] nicht vergönnt war;
die vereinigen ihre Gespräche mit dem Herrn,
denen menschliche Worte verwehrt waren.
