Divinity I and II[]

Latin[]

Habitavit
Dormivit
Caelo missus rex
Poena terrae motus
Error humanus
Cujus fructus foris
Cujus verbum clavis
Calamitas excitata ab imo
Cum haustus ext fremitu
Cum levatus ext carmine
Fatum invitans ruina sive paradisus
Preces
Clamorque
Pauci resistentes
Sola Dea fatum novit

English[]

He lived,
He slept.
The king sent by the sky.
His punishment is like an earthquake.
A mistake humans made,
Whose pleasure is the door,
And whose voice is the key.
Disaster is sparked by him.
As he is surrounded by roaring,
As he is summoned by chants,
So he himself can call upon ruinous fate and paradise alike.
Prayers,
And screams.
Few are able to resist.
A sole goddess could see destiny.
