Latin.png Latin text

Confisus Domino tua pectora crede Tonanti
  omnis ut illius stet tua cura fide.
Nec metus aut rabies ab eo te separet ulla
  fracta licet toto corruat orbe salus.

Inde tuo si quis studio aut ope postulet uti
  debita cui rerum sors alimenta negat
Esse velis aliis talis tibi qualis es ipse
  et mala vicini damna putare tua.
Tempora dum praesens mortalia finiat aevum
  atque alio veniens nos levet aura polo
Maxima sic geminis dicta lex scripta tabellis
  a Domino Sinai tradita in arce jugi.

Tenor I:
Confide et ama.
