"Carpe noctem" in lyrics
There is no future, there is no more past
No roots nor fruits, but momentary flowers,
Lie still, only lie still and night will last
Silent and dark, not for a space of hours,
Day of wrath, o Lord. Holy, Holy, rejoice!
Day of wrath, o Lord! Free me, o Lord!
Day of wrath, o Lord! Give me rest, o Lord![fn value="1"]This section is in Latin, translation by Kimmoo at www.lyricstranslate.com/en/carpe-noctem-seize-night.html[/fn]
