Ataraxia Mundus Furibundus (Carmina Burana) Lyrics

Last updated:

Iste mundus furibundus
falsa praestat gaudia
quia fluunt et decurrunt
ceu campi lilia
laus mondana vita vana
vera tollit praemia
nam impellit et submergit
anima in tartara
lex carnalis et mortalis
valde transitoria
fugit transit velut umbra
quae non est corporea
dimitemus et perdemus
quasi quaercus folia
fugiamus condemnamus
vius vitae dulcia
depredamus in futuro
praetiosa munera
ut cum iustis et electis
in caelesti gloria
gratulari mereamur per aeterna secula
AMEN

[Carmina Burana - cen. XII-XIII - anonymous]
