O mors, quam amara est memoria tua

Language: Latin

O mors, quam amara est memoria tua
homini pacem habenti in substantiis suis:
viro quieto, et cujus viæ directæ sunt in omnibus,
et adhuc valenti accipere cibum!
O mors, bonum est judicium tuum homini indigenti,
et qui minoratur viribus,
defecto ætate, et cui de omnibus cura est,
et incredibili, qui perdit patientiam!


Translation(s): ENG FRE GER

O mort que ton souvenir est amer

Language: French (Fran├žais) after the Latin

O mort que ton souvenir est amer
à l'homme qui vit en paix au milieu de ses biens,
à l'homme tranquille à qui tout réussit,
et qui est encore en état de goûter la nourriture!
O mort, que ton souvenir est amer, 
ô mort, ton arrêt est doux à l'indigent
dont les forces s'épuisent, qui est au déclin de l'âge,
travaillé de soucis, qui n'a plus de confiance et qui perd patience!
O mort que tu es douce!
