Wow Musical Group - King's Return sings a Beautiful "Ubi Caritas" Chant that will Touch You!


A vocal band of brothers. The group was formed in 2016 from pre-existing friendships. Their sound is rooted in Gospel, Jazz, R&B & Classical music. Their name reminds them to be our brother's keeper and to pay homage to our King, Jesus, who has Himself, promised to return. They recorded this beautiful original Latin Gregorian Chant hymn "Ubi Caritas" set to a variation by Ola Gjeilo. It is so beautiful and might touch your heart! 
Latin Text :
Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor. Exsultemus, et in ipso jucundemur. Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum. Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero. Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Simul ergo cum in unum congregamur: Ne nos mente dividamur, caveamus. Cessent iurgia maligna, cessent lites. Et in medio nostri sit Christus Deus. Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Simul quoque cum beatis videamus, Glorianter vultum tuum, Christe Deus: Gaudium quod est immensum, atque probum, Saecula per infinita saeculorum. Amen.
English Translation Where charity and love are, God is there. Love of Christ has gathered us into one. Let us rejoice in Him and be glad. Let us fear, and let us love the living God. And from a sincere heart let us love one. Where charity and love are, God is there. At the same time, therefore, are gathered into one: Lest we be divided in mind, let us beware. Let evil impulses stop, let controversy cease. And in the midst of us be Christ our God. Where charity and love are, God is there. At the same time we see that with the saints also, Thy face in glory, O Christ our God: The joy that is immense and good, Unto the World without end. Amen.
