A beautiful, glorious traditional hymn. A perfect filler for a day when I cannot do my normal posting.

Thanks to reader D for the link.  As he said, I wonder if the singers know what these amazing words mean in English.  How many in the audience know what a powerful prayer was sung to them?

This had perfect timing, as good Fr. Gordon offered a Requiem Mass for all the souls of those who have departed last night.

I do love this hymn.

The lyrics:

Pie Jesu, pie Jesu, pie Jesu, pie Jesu
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona eis requiem, dona eis requiem
Pie Jesu, pie Jesu, pie Jesu, pie Jesu
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona eis requiem, dona eis requiem
Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona eis requiem, dona eis requiem
Sempiternam
Sempiternam
Requiem

Merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus
Who takes away the sins of the world
Grant them rest, grant them rest
Merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus, merciful Jesus
Who takes away the sins of the world
Grant them rest, grant them rest
Lamb of God, Lamb of God, Lamb of God, Lamb of God
Who takes away the sins of the world
Grant them rest, grant them rest
Everlasting
Everlasting Rest

I can’t believe that sung at a secular show. Beautiful!
