Beautiful arrangement recorded by BYU Vocal Point acappella. This compilation of photos, sculpture, and painting shows the journey "ever upward" to Jesus Christ. Excelsior!
----------------------------
Here is my favorite translation of the latin lyrics. It is a little less literal and a little more lyrical:

In articulo mortis --- At the moment of death
Caelitus mihi vires --- My strength is from heaven
Deo adjuvante --- God is my helper
Non timendum in perpetuum --- So I shall never fear

Dirige nos domine --- Direct us, O Lord
Ad augusta per angusta --- By the narrow way to a place on high
Sic itur ad astra --- For thus is the path to the stars
Excelsior --- Ever upward!
