Beati quorum via - Charles V. Stanford (1852-1924)


Beati quorum via integra est:

qui ambulant in lege Domini


Blessed are they whose road is straight,

who walk in the law of the Lord.


Text: Psalm 119 v.1


Nunc dimittis in A - Ben Parry (b.1965)


Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word.

For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,

Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;

To be a light to lighten the Gentiles and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.



Beati quorum via - Charles V. Stanford (1852-1924)

Lass dich nicht - Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)


Laß dich nur nichts nicht dauern

Mit Trauern,

Sei stille! 

Wie Gott es fügt,

So sei vergnügt

Mein Wille.


Was willst du heute sorgen

Auf morgen?

Der Eine

steht allem für;

Der gibt auch dir

das Deine.


Sei nur in allem Handel

Ohn Wandel,

Steh feste! 

Was Gott beschleußt,

Das ist und heißt

das Beste. Amen.


Let nothing indeed make you endure grief;

Be at peace! If God ordains it,

may my will accept it.


Why worry today about tomorrow?

God stands for all;

He also gives you what is yours.


In all your dealings be without whim -

stand firmly! That which God decides

is and means the best. Amen.
