about

This familiar hymn, composed before the 10th century, is sung during the washing of the feet on Maundy Thursday.

lyrics

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exultemus et in ipso jucundemur.
Timeamus et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Simul ergo
Cum in unum congregamur
Ne nos mente dividamur, caveamus.
Cessent jurgia maligna, cessent lites.
Et in medio nostri sit Christus Deus.

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.
Simul quoque cum beatis videamus.
Glorianter vultum tuum, Christe Deus.
Gaudium quod est immensum, atque probum:
Saecula per infinita saeculorum. Amen.

TRANSLATION
============

Where there is charity and love, God is there.
We are gathered together in the love of Christ.
Let us rejoice in it and be glad.
Let us fear and love the living God.
And let us love one another from a sincere heart.

Where there is charity and love, God is there.
At the same time, therefore,
Let us be united when we gather together,
Take care, lest we be divided in mind.
Let us cease evil quarreling and strife,
And may Christ dwell in our midst.

Where there is charity and love, God is there.
Along with the blessed may we also see
The glory of your face, O Christ.
And may there be immeasurable joy
Though infinite ages. Amen.

(translation by Donna Stewart)
