Apparebit repentina dies magna Domini

Available translation(s): ENG
Apparebit repentina dies magna Domini,
fur obscura velut nocte improvisos occupans.
Brevis totus tum parebit prisci luxus saeculi,
totum simul cum clarebit praeterisse saeculum.
Clangor tubae per quaternas terrae plagas concinens,     
vivos una mortuosque Christo ciet obviam.
De caelesti judex arce, majestate fulgidus,
claris angelorum choris comitatus aderit.
Erubescet orbis lunae, sol et obscurabitur,
stellae cadent pallescentes, mundi tremet ambitus.
Flamma ignis anteibit justi vultum judicis,
caelos, terras, fluctus maris et profundi devorans.
Gloriosus rex sedebit in sublimi solio;
angelorum tremebunda circumstabunt agmina.
