Nulla in mundo pax sincera

Nulla in mundo pax sincera loosely translated in Latin means: No genuine peace in the world. For any classical music enthusiasts reading this post, The title of this poem comes from a motet by Vivaldi bearing the same name. The first aria of which can be found in the 1996 film, Shine.

Nulla in mundo pax sincera

There is no honest peace in all the world

Part from thee my Lord and King

From which all love and peace doth spring.

Your hand of mercy cools the fires

that we your children bane-fully burn

roasting our hate like kiln and urn.

I could look for peace in all the Earth.

But none ‘cept yours O God and King

Could worldly love ever bring,

Solace to my soul, assurance to my mind,

that in some other place I’ll find

an honest peace in all the world.

All to: My Lord and Savior Jesu Christi
