Latin.png Latin text

Hora est jam nos de somno surgere,
nunc enim propior est nostra salus
quam cum credidimus.
Nox praecessit dies autem appropinquavit
abiiciamus ergo opera tenebrarum
et induamur arma lucis.

Sicut in die honeste ambulemus
non in comesationibus et ebrietatibus,
non in conbilibus et impudititiis,
non in contentione et aemulatione,
sed induimini Dominum Jesum Christum.
