Meeting (Gaudeamus igitur)

Lyrics

(Traditional Latin, English Lyrics – Hervey White, 1903)

Sing the song we love to sing,
Sing the song of greeting,
Sing till all the echoes ring,
Joyousness repeating.
Song we sang when we were younger,
Song will sing when age grows stronger.
Gladsome song of meeting,
Gladsome song of meeting

Latin Lyrics – Gaudeamus igitur

Gaudeamus igitur,
Iuvenes dum sumus,
Gaudeamus igitur,
Iuvenes dum sumus,
Post iucundam iuventutem,
Post molestam senectutem
Nos habebit humus,
Nos habebit humus.

English Translation – Let us rejoice

Let us rejoice, therefore,
While we are young.
Let us rejoice, therefore,
While we are young.
After a pleasant youth
After a troubling old age
The earth will have us.
