Umbra Dextras, Prima Orbis
Templa Prospice, Diem Ex Dei

Fides Sponsa, Fides Per Dei
Missaes Can Ta, Mistrae Lingua

Umbra Dextras, Umbra Crucis
Umbra Deus, Lucius Dei

Fides Sponsa, Fides Per Dei
Missaes Can Ta, Mistrae Lingua

Umbra Dextras, Umbra Crucis
Umbra Deus, Lucius Dei

Fides Sponsa, Fides Per Dei
Missaes Can Ta, Mistrae Lingua

Ave Vitae, Rex Promissa
Ave Vitae, Rex Veritas

Missae Magnus, Fides En Dei
Missae Magnus, Fides En Dei
Christus Laudmus, Mistraes In God

    TranslationThere's a somewhat detailed discussion of the Latin in this song at latindiscussion.com/forum/latin/song-diem-ex-dei.9184/
    The consensus seems to be that it isn't grammatically correct, or at the very least takes a lot of liberties with the Latin (probably so it flows better when sung), so creating a strict translation probably isn't possible. User "scrabulista"'s posts in the thread give a general gist of what's being said; a very loose interpretation of the title might be "a day from God," for example.

    My InterpretationThis song is basically speak about faith, strength and empowerment by God. This is a board knowledge of it but if you are just wanting a general emotion of it, strength. I have studied French and a little bit of Latin, enough to understand the careless use of synonyms and with understanding of French can get a simple guess of how the word is used. I am working on a full translation.

    TranslationThis is probably the most accurate translation of this song's actually meaning. Not a literal definition but what the phrases are actually meant to say.

    In the shelter of his hands, the light of the world
    The temples look out for the day of our God

    Faith bride, faith in God
    Praise is sung in the language of God

    The shelter of his hands, the shadow of the cross
    Shelter of God, Lucius the God (?)

    Faith bride, faith by God
    Praise is sung in the language of God

    The shelter of his hands, the shadow of the cross
    Shelter of God, Lucius the God (?)

    Faith bride, faith by God
    Praise is sung in the language of God

    Live and Hail to the King of promises
    Life and Hail to the King of Truth

    Praise to the Great, Faith in God
    Praise to the Great, Faith in God

    Praise Christ, Our master is (in?) God
