Arval Chant

Latin

Translated from Latin to English by David Camden

Help us, O Lares,
Help us, O Lares,
Help us, O Lares!

And thou, Marmar, suffer not plague and ruin to attack our folk,
And thou, Marmar, suffer not plague and ruin to attack our folk,
And thou, Marmar, suffer not plague and ruin to attack our folk!

Be satisfied, O fierce Mars! Leap over the threshold! Halt here, here!
Be satisfied, O fierce Mars! Leap over the threshold! Halt here, here!
Be satisfied, O fierce Mars! Leap over the threshold! Halt here, here!

Call in alternate strain upon all the heroes,
Call in alternate strain upon all the heroes,
Call in alternate strain upon all the heroes.

Help us, Marmor,
Help us, Marmor,
Help us, Marmor!

Triumph! triumph! triumph! triumph! triumph!
