semper crescisever waxing
aut decrescis;and waning;

et tunc curatand then soothes
ludo mentis aciem,as fancy takes it;

dissolvit ut glaciem.it melts them like ice.
Sors immanisFate - monstrous
et inanis,and empty,
rota tu volubilis,you whirling wheel,
status malus,you are malevolent,
vana saluswell-being is vain
semper dissolubilis,and always fades to nothing,

et velataand veiled
michi quoque niteris;you plague me too;
nunc per ludumnow through the game
dorsum nudumI bring my bare back
fero tui sceleris.to your villainy.
Sors salutisFate is against me
et virtutisin health

et defectusand weighted down,
semper in angaria.always enslaved.
Hac in horaSo at this hour
sine morawithout delay
corde pulsum tangite;pluck the vibrating strings;
quod per sortemsince Fate
sternit fortem,strikes down the strong man,
mecum omnes plangite!everyone weep with me!
