Latin.png Latin text

Mors tua, mors Christi, fraus terrae, gloria coeli
et dolor inferni sunt meditanda tibi.
Vive diu sed vive Deo,
nam vivere mundo mortis opus.
Viva est vivere vita Deo.

Quicquid erit tandem mea spes est unica Christus,
huic vivo, huic moriar, caetera curo nihil,
Quid valet hic mundus? Quid gloria? Quidve triumphus?
Post miserum funus, pulvis et umbra sumus.
