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!
