976

Chorus I pray that discord, greedy for evil, may never clamor in this city, and may the dust not drink the black blood of its people 980and through passion cause ruinous murder for vengeance to the destruction of the state. [Note] But may they return joy for joy in a spirit of common love, 985and may they hate with one mind; for this is the cure of many an evil in the world.
