Beatus ille homo...

Here is today's Rhyming Distich, and here are some more posts with Rhyming Distichs. I found this poem in the collection Philosophia Patrum edited by Julius Wegeler.

Beatus ille homo, qui vivit sua domo,
Laudat Deum trinum et bibit bonum vinum.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are two words which are not on the DCC list:

bibo, -ere, bibī, bibitum - drink
trīnus -a -um - triple

beatus -a -um: happy, blessed, prosperous, fortunate
bonus -a -um: good
deus -ī m.; dea -ae f. god; goddess
domus -ūs f.: house, home
et: and
homo hominis m.: human being
ille, illa, illud: that
laudo -āre: praise
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
suus -a -um: his own, her own, its own
vīnum -ī n.: vine, wine
vīvo -ere vīxī victum: live
