Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Istorum est enim regnum coelorum
qui contempserunt vita mundi
et pervenerunt ad premia regni
et laverunt stolas suas in sanguine Agni.

English.png English translation

Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven,
who have despised the life in this world
and have attained the reward of the Kingdom,
and have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb.
