Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Quóties diem illum consídero,
   toto péctore contremísco.
Sive cómedo, sive enim bibo,
   semper mihi vidétur illa tuba terríbilis
   sonáre in aúribus meis.
Súrgite, mórtui, veníte ad judícium!

English.png English translation

Whenever I think of that day [of judgment],
   I tremble in my whole body.
Whether I am eating or drinking,
   it always seems to me as if that dreadful trumpet
   is ringing in my ears.
Arise, ye dead, and come to judgment!
