Lyrics: Psalm 133

Ecce quam bonum et quam jucundum, habitare fratres in unum!
Sicut unguentum in capite, quod descendit in barbam, barbam Aaron, quod descendit in oram vestimenti eius.
Sicut ros Hermon, qui descendit in montem Zion.
Quoniam illic mandavit Dominus benedictionem, et vitam usque in sæculum.

Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is: brethren, to dwell together in unity!
It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down unto the beard: even unto Aaron's beard, and went down to the skirts of his clothing.
Like as the dew of Hermon: which fell upon the hill of Sion.
For there the Lord promised his blessing: and life for evermore.
