Text heard on Sample:
Caedit non pestis,
Theba peste moritur.
E peste serva nos, serva,
E peste qua Theba moritur.
Oedipus, adest pestis,
Oedipus, e peste serva nos,
E peste libera urbem.

The plague is upon us,
Thebes is dying of the plague.
Save us, save us from the plague
Of which Thebes is dying.
Oedipus, the plague is upon us,
Oedipus, save us from the plague,
Deliver the city from the plague.

© Libretto by Jean Cocteau, translated into Latin by Jean Daniélou
