Latin.png Latin text

Vigila mortalis, Sathan te tendit laqueos.
Amor mundi esca Demonis, haec mortem confert, haec omnes decipit.

Oh munde fallax, munde mendax, semper felix qui te ridet,
numquam miser qui te odit.

Mundum fuge, Mundum sperne, caeli quere iubila caeli quere iubila,
Illa aeterna haec ut umbra, momenta ne apereunt.

Transit honor spirat voluptas,
pulchritudo perit, occidit vita, transit honor,
spirat voluptas omnia tandem vanitas.
