Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

habundat in omnia,
de imis excellentissima
super sidera
atque amantissima
in omnia,
quia summo regi osculum pacis

English.png English translation

Divine Love
overflows into everything
raised high – highest – from the very depths
to surpass constellations,
and tender – most tender –
toward all creation,
such that it bestows the kiss of peace
on the highest king.

Translation by Hugh McElroy
