AURUM,
INFUSCATUM ET OBSCURUM,
CANENS NOCTIS,
CANENS MORTIS,
ACQUIESCENS CANENDO

ET ANGELUM SOMNIT AURORARUM ET BELLORUM,
SAECULORUM AURORUM FUNDIT LACRIMAS,
LACRIMAS RERUM BELLORUM.

O ARMA!
O LAMINA AURATA!
GESTU GRAVES NIMIUM,
GRAVES NIMIUM VOLATU.

AURUM,
INFUSCATUM ET TORPIDUM
SUSCITA!
DILABERE EX ARMIS IN ALAM!
VOLEMUS ITERUM,
ALTE SUPRA MURUM;
ANGELI RENASCENTES ET EXULTANTES AD ALAS
AURORARUM,
AURORUM,
SOMNORUM.

AURUM,
CANENS ALARUM,
CANENS UMBRARUM.

-English-
Gold,
Tarnished and dark,
Singing of night,
Singing of death,
Singing itself to sleep.
And an angel dreams of sunrise,
And war.

Tears of the ages.
O shield!
O gilded blade!
You are too heavy to carry,
Too heavy for flight.

Gold,
Tarnished and weary,
Awaken!
Melt from weapon to wing!
Let us soar again,
High above this wall;
Angels reborn and rejoicing with wings made
Of dawn,
Of gold,
Of dream.

Gold,
Singing of wings,
Singing of shadows.
