Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Qui ratione mundum Deus mirifica gubernas
et ab aevo qui tempus ire jubes,
Audi de supremo cælo nostros clamores
et anxios singultus.
Fer aegris et lenimen en vacui te fine ut jacemus.
Ergo fons et origo boni
nos bonitatis respice ocellis,
cui manet aeterna imperii potestas.

Lord God, who governs amazingly the reckoning of the world,
and who, throughout ages, commands time to pass,
Listen from the highest heavens to our wailings
and our anxious sobbings.
Bring solace to the sick that we may rest unburdened.
Therefore, source and origin of good things,
reflect on us with kindness in your eyes,
That the power of authority may remain forever.

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
