Words

Nox praecessit, dies autem appropinquabit.
Ecce Rex tuus venit tibi mansuetus.
Et misit me praedicare annum acceptum Domini.
Nox praecessit, Dies autem appropinquabit.

Words Romans 13 v. 12, Matthew 21 v. 5 & Luke 4 vv. 18–19

Translation

The night has passed and the day shall draw near.
Behold your King comes to you gently.
And he has sent me to proclaim the year acceptable to the Lord.
The night has passed and the day shall draw near.
