In civitate Domini clare sonant iugiter organa sanctorum;
ibi cinnamomum et balsamum odor suavissimus carmina eorum;
ibi angeli et archangeli hymnum novum decantant ante thronum Dei.

English.png English translation

In the city of the Lord, the organs of the saints continually ring out;
There their songs are like the sweet odour of cinnamon and balsam;
There angels and archangels sing a new song before the throne of God.
