Requiem aeternam

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Te decet hymnus, Deus, in Sion,
et Tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem.
Exaudi orationem meam,
ad Te omnis caro veniet.
Kyrie, eleison. Christe, eleison.

Graduale

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
In memoria aeterna erit justus,
ab auditione mala non timebit.

Dies irae

Dies irae, dies illa,
solvet saeclum in favilla,
teste David cum Sibylla!
Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando Judex est venturus
cuncta stricte discussurus!

Tuba mirum

Tuba mirum spargens sonum
per sepulcra regionum,
coget omnes ante thronum.
Mors stupebit, et natura,
cum resurget creatura,
judicanti responura.
Liber scriptus proferetur,
in quo totum continetur,
unde mundus judicetur.
Judex ergo cum sedebit,
quidquid latet, apparebit,
nil inultum remanebit.
Dies irae, dies illa,
solvet saeclum in favilla,
teste David cum Sibylla.
Quantus tremor est futurus,
quando Judex est venturus
cuncta stricte discusurus!
Tuba mirum spargens sonum
per sepulcra regionum,
coget omnes ante thronum.

Quod sum miser

Quod sum miser, tunc dicturus?
quem patronum rogaturus?
cum vix justus sit securus?
Rex tremendae majestatis,
qui salvandos salvas gratis,
salva me, fons pietatis.

Recordare, Jesu pie

Recordare, Jesu pie,
quod sum causa tuae viae,
ne me perdas illa die.
Quaerens me, sedisti lassus,
redemisti crucem passus;
tantus labor non sit cassus.
Juste judex ultionis,
donum fac remissionis,
ante diem rationis.
Ingemisco, tamquam reus,
culpa rubet vultus meus;
supplicanti parce Deus.
Qui Mariam absolvisti
et latronem exaudisti,
mihi quoque spem dedisti.
Preces meae non sunt dignae,
sed tu bonus fac benigne,
ne perenni cremer igne.
Inter oves locum praestra,
et ab haedis me sequestra,
statuens in parte dextra.

Confutatis maledictis

Confutatis maledictis,
flammis acribus addictis,
voca me cum benedictis.
Oro supplex et acclinis,
cor contritum quasi cinis;
gere curam mei finis.

Lacrimosa

Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla
judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus,
Pie Jesu, Jesu Domine,
dona eis requiem sempiternam.
Amen.

Offertorium

Domine Jesu Chiste, Rex gloriae.
Libera animas omnium fidelium defunctorum
de poenis inferni et de profundo lacu.
Libera eas de ore leonis, Domine Jesu Christe,
ne absorbeat eas tartarus,
ne cadant in obscurum.
Sed signifer sanctus Michael
repraesentet eas in lucem sanctam.
Quam olim Abrahae promisisti
et semini eius.

Hostias

Domine Jesu Christe, Rex gloriae.
Hostias et preces tibi laudis offerimus.
Tu suscipe pro animabus illis,
quarum hodie memoriam faciemus.
Libera eas.
Fac eas, Domine, de morte transire
ad vitam.
Quam olim Abrahae promisisti
et semini eius.

Sanctus

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth!
Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua.
Hosanna in excelsis!
Benedictus, qui venit in nomine Domini.

Pie Jesu

Pie Jesu, dona eis requiem sempiternam.

Agnus Dei

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi,
dona eis requiem sempiternam.
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine,
cum Sanctis tuis in aeternum,
quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
 

Requiem aeternam

Grant them eternal rest, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
A hymn becomes you, O God, in Zion,
and to you shall a vow be repaid in Jerusalem.
Hear my prayer,
to you shall all flesh come.
Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy.

Graduale

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
He shall be justified in everlasting memory,
and shall not fear evil reports.

Dies irae

The day of wrath, that day
Will dissolve the world in ashes
As foretold by David and the Sibyl!
How much tremor there will be,
when the judge will come,
investigating everything strictly!

Tuba mirum

The trumpet, scattering a wondrous sound
through the sepulchres of the regions,
will summon all before the throne.
Death and nature will marvel,
when the creature arises,
to respond to the Judge.
The written book will be brought forth,
in which all is contained,
from which the world shall be judged.
When therefore the judge will sit,
whatever hides will appear:
nothing will remain unpunished.
The day of wrath, that day
Will dissolve the world in ashes
As foretold by David and the Sibyl!
How much tremor there will be,
when the judge will come,
investigating everything strictly!
The trumpet, scattering a wondrous sound
through the sepulchres of the regions,
will summon all before the throne.

Quod sum miser

What am I, miserable, then to say?
Which patron to ask,
when even the just may only hardly be sure?
King of tremendous majesty,
who freely savest those that have to be saved,
save me, source of mercy.

Recordare, Jesu pie

Remember, merciful Jesus,
that I am the cause of thy way:
lest thou lose me in that day.
Seeking me, thou sat tired:
thou redeemed me having suffered the Cross:
let not so much hardship be lost.
Just judge of revenge,
give the gift of remission
before the day of reckoning.
I sigh, like the guilty one:
my face reddens in guilt:
Spare the supplicating one, God.
Thou who absolved Mary,
and heardest the robber,
gavest hope to me, too.
My prayers are not worthy:
however, thou, good Lord, do good,
lest I am burned up by eternal fire.
Grant me a place among the sheep,
and take me out from among the goats,
setting me on the right side.

Confutatis maledictis

Once the cursed have been rebuked,
sentenced to acrid flames:
Call thou me with the blessed.
I meekly and humbly pray,
my heart is as crushed as the ashes:
perform the healing of mine end.

Lacrimosa

Tearful will be that day,
on which from the ashes arises
the guilty man who is to be judged.
Spare him therefore, God.
Merciful Lord Jesus,
grant them eternal rest.
Amen.

Offertorium

Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory,
free the souls of all the faithful departed
from infernal punishment and the deep pit.
Free them from the mouth of the lion;
do not let Tartarus swallow them,
nor let them fall into darkness;
but may the standard-bearer Saint Michael,
lead them into the holy light
which you once promised to Abraham
and his seed.

Hostias

Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory,
O Lord, we offer You
sacrifices and prayers of praise;
accept them on behalf of those souls
whom we remember today.
Let them, O Lord,
pass over from death to life,
as you once promised to Abraham
and his seed.

Sanctus

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Pie Jesu

Merciful Lord Jesus, grant them eternal rest.

Agnus Dei

Lamb of God, you who take away the sins of the world,
grant them eternal rest.
May everlasting light shine upon them, O Lord,
with your Saints forever,
for you are kind.
Grant them eternal rest, O Lord,
and may everlasting light shine upon them.
