Elfen Lied ♪ Lilium

Lilium. Elfen Lied's opening theme.

The lyrics is in Latin.

Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam,
Et lingua eius loquetur indicium.

Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem,
Quoniqm cum probates fuerit
accipient coronam vitae.

Kyrie, ignis divine, eleison.

O quam sancta, quam serena,
Quam benigma, quam amoena,
O castitatis lilium.
The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom
And his language shall become clear

Blessed is he who suffers temptation
Since he, with striving, shall
receive the crown of life

Lord, fire divine, have mercy

O how sacred, how serene,
how kind, how lovely
O, lilly of chastity!

A song that presses human suffering in your eardrum. Incongruously, it's from a Japanese anime. While its theme is a sad human story, but visually filled with cheap violence, sex, gore.

i wish to bore myself, a task drear and dear,
of bearing naked girls; bodily toil and moil.
in that i learn contact, of flesh and humanity.
and meditate the heavy duty, of men and eternity.
