Alleluia dulce carmen,
Vox perennis gaudii,
Alleluia laus suavis
Est choris coelestibus,
Quam canunt Dei manentes
In domo per saecula.

Alleluia, the sweet song,
A word of perennial joy
Alleluia is sweet praise,
to the celestial choirs
Which they remaining forevermore
sing in the house of God.

Alleluia laeta mater
Concivis Jerusalem:
Alleluia vox tuorum
Civium gaudentium:
Exsules nos flere cogunt
Babylonis flumina.

Alleluia, joyful mother,
Fellow-citizen of Jerusalem
Alleluia, the word of thy
rejoicing citizens
We in exile gather to weep
At the rivers of Babylon

Alleluia non meremur
In perenne psallere;
Alleluia vo reatus
Cogit intermittere;
Tempus instat quo peracta
Lugeamus crimina.

We do not deserve to sing
the Alleluia forever
Our guilty voice compels
to omit the Alleluia
For the is approaching fast
In which we must mourn our guilty deeds

Unde laudando precamur
Te beata Trinitas,
Ut tuum nobis videre
Pascha des in aethere,
Quo tibi laeti canamus
Alleluia perpetim.

Whence in praising we beseech
Thee, blessed Trinity,
That thou grant to us
to see Thy Easter in heaven
Where we joyful may sing
Alleluia to thee perpetually

For those following the traditional calendar the Alleluia is buried this Saturday evening for Septuagesima. Those in the new calendar will omit it starting Ash Wednesday of course. The above is a hymn of farewell to the Alleluia, sung during the rite of deposition in many places (especially England)

Quoniam sapientia aperuit os mutorum, et linguas infantium fecit disertas.

Way off topic, but could you add a 'Formerly known as Pro Ecclesia Dei' in your sig line?

Καὶ ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο

“Being religious means asking passionately the question of the meaning of our existence and being willing to receive answers, even if the answers hurt.” — Paul Tillich
