In Latin: Glory, life, beauty, treasure, fame, pleasure,/ Vain, brief, fragile, transient, unreliable, effeminate;/ Tomb, bubble, strength, firebrand, wind, sweet poison,/ Vanishes, perishes, withers, dissolves, flees, chokes./ Nothing in the whole work is permanent; swift is the world's ruin./ The fabric of the wide work will vanish into nothingness./ Steadfast faith alone furnishes an eternal crown./ Faith in Christ alone furnishes rewards./ In this faith have I lived, in this faith I die;/ In life, in death, Christ to me is gain. [Translation courtesy of Westminster Abbey website.]
