Laudate Omnes Gentes

In a post-Halloween/Reformation Day stupor, I’m still thinking about Luther, MLK, movers, shakers, leaders in general…
Here is a song-poem by Ace of Base from 1993.

Laudate omnes gentes laudate
Magnificat en secula
Et anima mea laudate
Magnificat en secula

Happy nation, living in a happy nation
Where the people understand
And dream of perfect man
Situation –  lead to sweet salvation
For the people, for the good
For mankind brotherhood…

We’re traveling in time

Ideas by man and only that will last
And over time we’ve learned from the past
That no man’s fit to rule the world alone
  The man will die –  but not his ideas

Happy nation…

We’re traveling in time
Traveling in time…

Tell them we’ve gone too far
Tell them we’ve gone too far
(Happy nation)
Come through
and I will dance with you
Happy nation…

Happy nation…   

My apologies if you dislike Ace of Base.

You can always read SWINBURNE instead
