what are the lyrics to the H4 town themes?

i'm mainly concerning haven, preserve, and asylum.
In the diameter of the Universe, we are but a single flame. To say that we're insignificant is to give us....too little credit. But if the universe chooses you to be part of its plans, then you better let go because it makes it more fun when you don't know what's about to happen next!

Preserve: I did seem to recognize a few words, like the Latin "Deo" (God), the Hebrew "Hallelujah" (which I think we all know the meaning of, as it's a loanword in many other languages (including the Church's version of Latin)). One of the parts sounded to me like the German "noch nie ja" ("still never yes"), but I don't think that's what they said.

Asylum: Not sure about the soprano, but the altos are singing the Solfege scale (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti, Do).

Had to bump this because I noticed here someone tried to transcribe the lyrics:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFcjgdby7F4

Ton caritas vindice de omnias
Son subita moria
Ton subitas veritas (x2)
Nem vindice carcate subita?...
Milia deo solos/somos omnia
Carita solos mora moria omnia
Ton caritas vindice de omnias
Son subita moria
Ton subitas veritas (x2)
Nem vindice carcate subita?...
Sore mi subita pro caritas omnia
Subita frasotas/pravitas?... Deus manea

I wonder if Paul knows more about it, sometimes he posts on YouTube but couldn't find a way to contact him...

Interesting. I did notice they were singing in Latin, but never cared enough to actually stop to try to understand the lyricis, mainly because the music and intonation make it quite hard. I did hear "laudate deum" somewhere.

I wonder if we could ask rob king and paul romero some transcriptions.

Since H2 OSTs had lyrics from the Bible in German for good factions and from Nietzsche for evil factions, perhaps this might give a clue to those who still tries to figure out the lyrics. Not sure if NWC decided to stick to the same system for H4 though.
