O Caritas

hunc ornatum mundi
nolo perdere
video flagrare, video flagrare
video flagrare, omnia res
audio clamare, audio clamare
audio clamare, homines
nunc extinguitur
mund(i) et astrorum lamen
nunc concipitur
mali hominis crimen
tristetat(e) et lacrimis
gravis est dolor
de terraeque maribus
magnus est clamor
O caritas, O caritas
nobis semper sit amor
mos perituri mortem salutamus – ah, ah
sola resurgit vita

Ah, this world is burning fast
Oh, the world will never last
I don’t want to lose, I don’t want to lose it
I don’t want to lose it here in my time
Give me time forever, give me time forever
Give me time forever here in my time

(Translation of Latin:)
I don’t want to lose the harmony of the universe
I see all things – burning, I hear me – shouting
Now is the light of the world and the stars are going out
Now does the blame for the disaster fall upon men
Grief is heavy with sadness and tears
Great is the noise from the earth and the seas
O love! O love! Be with us always
We who will perish salute death Life alone goes on!
