Imperator rex Graecorum (English translation)

Advertisements
Greek, Latin

Imperator rex Graecorum

Imperator rex Graecorum,
Minas spernens paganorum,
Auro sumpto thesaurorum
Parat sumptus armatorum
 
Almaricus miles fortis,
Rex communis nostre sortis,
In Egypto fractis portis
Turcos siravit dire mortis.
 
Ayos o theos athanathos,
Ysma sather yskyros!
Salva tuos famulos!
 
Omnis ergo Christianus
Ad Egyptum tendat manus!
Semper ibi degat sanus,
Destruatur rex paganus!
 
Ayos o theos athanathos,
Ysma sather yskyros!
Miserere kyrios,
 
Ayos o theos athanathos,
Ysma sather yskyros!
Salva tuos famulos!
 
Semper ibi degat sanus,
Destruatur rex paganus!
 
Ayos o theos athanathos,
Ysma sather yskyros!
Miserere kyrios,
 
Ayos o theos athanathos,
Ysma sather yskyros!
Salva tuos famulos!

English translation

Emperor and King of the Greeks

The emperor and king of the Greeks,
Separating coins from the pagans,
Taking a treasure in gold,
Prepares an arms purchase.
 
Almaric, the brave knight,
King of our shared fate,
Having broken the gates in Egypt,
Casts the Turks into terrible death.
 
Holy is the immortal God,
Mighty Savior!
Save your servants!
 
So every Christian
Ought to lend a hand to Egypt;
May they safely arrive there,
And let the pagan king be destroyed!
 
Holy is the immortal God,
Mighty Savior!
Have mercy, Lord,
 
Holy is the immortal God,
Mighty Savior!
Save your servants!
 
May they safely arrive there,
And let the pagan king be destroyed!
 
Holy is the immortal God,
Mighty Savior!
Have mercy, Lord,
 
Holy is the immortal God,
Mighty Savior!
Save your servants!

I am still unsure of the greek part of the choruses.

Corrections are welcome.
