text: Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unam Christi amor.
Exsultemus et in ipso jocundmur,
Timeamus et amemus Deum Vivum.

Where charity and love are, God is there.
Christ's love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in Him.
Let us fear, and let us love the Living God.
