Help us, O Lares, help us, Lares, help us.
And thou, O Marmar, suffer not
Fell plague and ruins rot
Our folk to devastate.
Be satiate, O fierce Mars, be satiate.
(Leap o'er the threshold. Halt. Now beat the ground.)
(Call to your aid the heroes all. New beat the ground.)
Help us, O Marmar, help us, Marmar, help us.
(Bound high in solemn measure, bound and bound again.
Bound high and bound again.
