Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Justorum animae in manu Dei sunt,
et non tanget illos tormentum mortis.
Visi sunt oculis insipientium mori,
illi autem sunt in pace.

English.png English translation

The souls of the just are in the hand of God,
and the torment of death shall not touch them.
In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die;
but they are in peace.
Translation by St Ann choir

German.png German translation

Der Gerechten Seelen sind in Gottes Hand,
und nicht rührt sie die Qual des Todes.
Sie scheinen den Augen der Törichten gestorben,
doch sie ruhen in Frieden.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Az igazak lelkei Isten kezében vannak,
s a halál kínja nem éri őket.
Úgy látszott a balgák szemében, hogy meghaltak,
ők azonban békességben vannak.
