The lyrics of O Fortuna in English

Have you ever wondered what the famous O Fortuna, which was set to music by Carl Orf, is all about. Wonder no more, here are the words in English.

O Fortuna is a medieval Latin Goliardic poem composed early in the thirteenth century, part of the collection known as the Carmina Burana.

It is a complaint about fate, and Fortuna, a goddess in Roman mythology, is a personification of luck. In 193536 O Fortuna was set to music by the German composer Carl Orff for his twenty-four-movement cantata Carmina Burana. It is the most famous movement and opens and closes the cycle.
