Carl Orff – Ecce Gratum lyrics

Ecce gratum
Et optatum
Ver reducit gaudia,
Floret pratum,
Sol serenat omnia.
Iamiam cedant tristia!
Estas redit,
Nunc recedit
Hyemis sevitia.
Iam liquescit
Et decrescit
Grando, nix et cetera;
Bruma fugit,
Et iam sugit
Ver Estatis ubera;
Illi mens est misera,
Qui nec vivit,
Nec lascivit
Sub Estatis dextera.
Et letantur
In melle dulcedinis,
Qui conantur,
Ut utantur
Premio Cupidinis:
Simus jussu Cypridis
Et letantes
Pares esse Paridis.
