Fratres in Unum(Psalm 133 in Latin)

quam iucundum 
habitare fratres in unum
ecce quam bonum et quam decorum 
habitare fratres in unum, 
sicut unguentum optimum in capite quod 
descendit in barbam, 
barbam Aaron quod descendit
super ora vestimenti eius 
sicut ros Hermon qui descendit
 in montem Sion
quoniam illic mandavit Dominus benedictionem 
et vitam usque in saeculum.
Translation to English

Brothers in Unity

How pleasant it is 
when brothers live together in unity
Behold, how good and honorable it is 
when brothers live together in unity! 

It is like precious oil poured on the head, 
unning down on the beard, 
running down on Aaron’s beard, 

down upon the collar of his robes.

It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls 
on Mount Zion. 
For there the LORD has
bestowed His blessing, 
even life forevermore.
