Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

O bone Jesu! Illumina oculos meos, ne unquam obdormiam in morte,
nequando dicat inimicus meus praevalui adversus eum.
O Adonai! In manus tuas, Domine, commendo spiritum meum;
redemisti me, Domine, Deus veritatis.

Variant 1

O Messias, locutus sum in lingua mea: notum fac mihi finem meum.

English.png English translation

O good Jesus! Illuminate my eyes, lest I sleep in death,
lest my enemy say that I prevailed against him.
O Lord! Into thy hands, Lord, do I commend my spirit;
thou hast redeemed me, Lord, God of truth.
Translation by St Ann choir

Variant 1

O Messiah, I have spoken: Lord, let me know my end.
