We believe that thou shalt come to be our Judge.
We therefore pray thee, help thy servants, whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.
Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save thy people, and bless thine heritage.
Govern them, and lift them up for ever.
Day by day we magnify thee;
And we worship thy name ever, world without end.
Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us this day without
O Lord, have mercy upon us; have mercy upon us;
O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us, as our trust is in thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted: let me never be confounded.
Credimus te mox venturum
Nostrum judicem futurum :
Fac beatis adscribamur,
Tolle, Deus, et guberna,
In salute sempiternâ
Tuum tene populum.
Indies te honoramus,
Sine fine laudem damus.
Hodie nos tueare
Et prohibeas peccare:
Fulgeat pro spe fideli
Sis tu liberator meus;
Noli me confundere.
Beyond the Acherontian pool
And hark, what music on the breeze? "Twas like the tune of summer-bees, A myriad-floating hum.
From spirits like himself it flow'd,
To mortals, who on earth fulfil
Are given these happy glades; Where they, from all corruption free, In unrestricted liberty
May dwell, etherial shades.
All shrubs for them of rich perfume,
Amaracus and myrtle bloom,
And flowers of brightest hue,
THE SAME TRANSLATED.
Felix paludem trans Acherontiam
At vox susurrans innumerabilis
Cum strepitu glomerare carmen ;
Gratantium illi turba sodalium
Occurrit ingens: mollior halitus
Inspirat aurarum, micantque
Virtute functis hic animis datur
Flores amonos inter et arbores
Errare passim est: hic et amaracus,
Laurique collatæque myrti
Dulcis odos, hyacinthinâque
And silver-sparkling rivers meet,
And echoes are in every dale
Of airy harp and nightingale
And babbling water-song.
There is no bound of time or place;
The summer lightnings gleam not so,
The tender bosom thrills.
And memory is unmixt with pain,
Though consciousness they still retain
Of joys they left behind : Whate'er on earth they held most dear, To pure enjoyment hallow'd here
In golden dream they find.
