This life is vain…

In vain do you race, O man,

in this life?

Short-lived in this world, long are the


of the world beyond; what kind of joy

can be nourished?

Shun therefore to live in joy. May you


the great Lord, before the hour comes

upon you

and the creator finds you unprepared,


in fervent penance, for God wishes.

Do not listen to Beliar (the Devil); rather

listen and run

with eagerness, cry out, for the only

compassion he has given you in his own


the undying one unto all ages…
