"In Noctem" was a song sung by the Hogwarts choir in 1997, conducted by Filius Flitwick, shortly before the school's headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, was killed by Severus Snape. The song featured four verses, in both English and Latin, with the Latin lyrics being the same as the English ones.
Carry my soul into the night
May the stars light my way
I glory in the sight
As darkness takes the day
Ferte in noctem animam meam
Illustrent stellae viam meam
Aspectu illo glorior
Dum capit nox diem
Cantate vitae canticum
Sine dolore actae
Dicite eis quos amabam
Me nunquam obliturum
Sing a song, a song of life
Lived without regret
Tell the ones, the ones I loved
I never will forget.
Never will forget.
