1. 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. Christie eleison. Kyrie eleison.

Grant them rest eternal, Lord our God, we pray to thee: and light perpetual shine on them forever.
Thou, Lord, art worshipped in Sion; thy praises shall ever be sung in all Jerusalem.
O hear us; O Lord, hear thy faithful servants; prayer; to thee shall all mortal flesh return.
Kyrie eleison. Christie eleison. Kyrie eleison.

- From Missa pro defunctis


2. Out of the Deep
Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice.
O let thine ears consider well: the voice of my complaint
If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss:
O Lord, who may abide it?
For there is mercy with thee: therefore shalt thou be feared.
I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for him: in his word is my trust.
My soul fleeth unto the Lord; before the morning watch, I say, before the morning watch.
O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy: and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel: from all his sins.
-Psalm 130


3. Pie Jesu
Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem.
Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis sempiternam requiem.

Blessed Jesu, Lord I pray in thy mercy grant them rest.
Lord our God, we pray for thee, grant them everlasting rest.

- From ‘Dies Irae’, Missa pro defunctis


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

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and majesty.
Heaven and earth are full of thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord our God:
Hosanna in the highest.


5. Agnus Dei
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem.
Lamb of God, that takest away the sins of the world: in thy mercy, grant them rest.
Man that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He cometh up, and is cut down like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem.
In the midst of life we are in death: of whom may we seek for succour?

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem.
I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
- Latin text from Missa pro defunctis; English texts from the Burial Service, 1662 Book of Common Prayers
