Quis est Deus?
(The Questions of Ethne the Fair)

See also St. Patrick's Reply

Quis est Deus
et ubi est Deus
et cuius est Deus
et ubi habitaculum eius?

Si habet filios et filias,
aurum et argentum, Deus vester?

Si vivus semper,
Si pulcher,
si filium eius
nutrierunt multi?
Si filiae eius
carae et pulchrae sunt
hominibus mundi?

Si in caelo
an in terra est?
in aequore,
in fluminibus,
in montanis,
in convallibus?

Dic notis
notitiam eius:
Quomodo videbitur,
quomodo diligitur,
quomodo invenitur?

Si in iuventute,
si in senectute

Who is God,
and where is God,
of whom is God,
and where is his dwelling?

Has he sons and daughters,
gold and silver, your God?

Is he ever-living?
Is he beautiful?
Was his son
fostered by many?
Are his daughters
dear and beautiful
to the men of the world?

Is he in heaven
or on earth?
In the sea,
in the rivers,
in the mountains,
in the valleys?

Speak to us
his tidings:
How is he to be seen,
how is he to be loved,
how is he to be found?

Is it in youth
or in old age
that he is found?

St. Patrick of Ireland
