Verdi Requiem
Text and Translation
Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla
judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus,
Pie Jesu, Domine,
dona eis requiem! Amen.
Domine Jesu Christe, Rex
gloriae,
libera animas omnium
fidelium defunctorum
de poenis inferni,
et de profundo lacu!
Libera eas de oro leonis,
ne absorbeat eas Tartarus,
ne cadant in obscurum.
Sed signifer Sanctus Michael
repraesentet eas in lucem
sanctam;
quam olim Abrahae promisisti
et semini ejus.
Hostias et preces tibi, Domine
laudis offerimus.
Tu suscipe pro animabus illis
quarum hodie memoriam
facimus,
fac eas, Domine, de morte
transire ad vitam.
Quam olim Abrahae promisisti
et semini ejus.
Libera animas omnium
fideium defunctoum
de poenis inferni,
face eas de morte transire ad
vitam.
Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus,
Dominus Deus Sabaoth!
Pleni sunt coeli et terra Gloria
tuae.
Hosanna in excelsis,
Benedictus qui venit in
nomine Domini,
Hosanna in excelsis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata
mundi,
dona eis requiem;
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata
mundi,
dona eis requiem
sempiternam.
On that tearful day,
when the guilty man rises
again
out of the ashes to be judged,
spare him then,
Holy Lord Jesus,
grant them rest. Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, King of
Glory,
free the souls of all the faithful
departed
from the punishments of hell
and the deep pit.
Free them from the lion’s
mouth
lest hell engulf them
and they fall into darkness,
but let Saint Michael the
standard-bearer
lead them into the holy light,
as you once promised to
Abraham and his seed.
Sacrifices and prayers we offer
in praise to you, Lord.
Accept them for those
whom we remember today.
Make them go across from
death to life,
as you once promised to
Abraham and to his seed.
Free the souls of all the
faithful departed
from the punishments of hell,
Make them go across from
death to life.
Holy, holy, holy
Lord God of hosts!
The heavens and the earth are
filled with your glory.
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is he who comes in
the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
Lamb of God, you take away
the sins of the world,
grant them rest.
Lamb of God, you take away
the sins of the world,
grant them rest for ever and
ever.
Lux aeterna luceat eis,
Domine,
cum sanctis tuis in aeternum,
quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis,
Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
cum sanctis tuis in aeternum,
quia pius es.
Libera me, Domine, de morte
aeterna,
in die illa tremenda;
Quando coeli movendi sunt et
terra!
Dum veneris judicare
saeculum per ignem.
Tremens factus sum ego
et timeo, dum discussion
venerit,
atque ventura ira.
quando coeli movendi sunt et
terra!
Dies illa, dies irae,
calamitatis et miseriae,
dies magna et amara valde,
dum veneris judicare
saeculum per ignem.
Requiem aeternam dona eis,
Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Libera me, Domine, de morte
aeterna,
in die illa tremenda,
quando coeli movendi sunt et
terra!
Dum veneris judicare
saeculum per ignem.
Libera me.
Let eternal light shine on
them, Lord,
with your saints forever,
for you are compassionate.
Eternal rest grant them, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine
upon them,
with your saints forever,
for you are compassionate.
Free me, Lord, from eternal
death
on that terrifying day
when the heavens and the
earth are stirred,
when you come to judge
the age with fire.
I become fearful and
trembling
at the trial at hand
and the wrath to follow
when the heavens and earth
are stirred.
That day, that wrathful day
of calamity and misery,
a great and bitter day,
when you will come to judge
the age with fire.
Grant them eternal rest, Lord,
and let perpetual light shine
upon them.
Free me, Lord, from eternal
death
on that terrifying day
when the heavens and the
earth are stirred,
when you will come to judge
the age with fire.
Free me.
