Text:

Libera me, Domine, de morte aeterna, in die illa tremenda:
Quando caeli movendi sunt et terra.
Dum veneris judicare saeculum per ignem.
Tremens factus sum ego, et timeo, Quando caeli movendi sunt et terra.

Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine. (Requiem aeternam)
No man hath greater love than this, to lay down his life for his friends.
In paradisum deducant te Angeli:
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem.
Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat, aeternam habeas requiem.
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

- Latin Requiem Mass
- adapted by Timothy C. Takach

Translation:

Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death on that fearful day,
when the heavens and the earth are moved,
when you come to judge the world with fire.
I am made to tremble and I fear, when the heavens and the earth are moved.

Let perpetual light shine upon them, O Lord. (Grant them eternal rest)
No man hath greater love than this, to lay down his life for his friends.
May angels lead you into paradise;
and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem.
May a choir of angels receive you, may you have eternal rest.
Grant them eternal rest, O Lord,

And let perpetual light shine upon them.
