The lily

Latin

Lilium

Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam
Et lingua eius loquetur iudicium

Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem
Quoniam cum probatus fuerit accipiet coronam vitae

Kyrie, fons bonitatis
Kyrie, Ignis Divine, Eleison

O quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigna
Quam amoena esse virgo creditur

O quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigna
Quam amoena O castitatis lilium

The lily

The mouth of the just one will prepare itself for wisdom
And his tongue is telling a judgement

Blessed is the one who bears a temptation
Since after being tested, he will receive the crown of life

Lord, the source of good-heartedness
Lord, the divine fire, be gracious

Oh how holy, how serene, how benign
How beautiful is the virgin believed to be

Oh how holy, how serene, how benign
How beautiful, Oh lily of chastity
