Te Lucis (based on Canon by Thomas Tallis)

 

Soloist: Alex Baron

 

Te Lucis ante terminum                                     Before the ending of the day

Rerum creator poscimus                                   Creator of the world, we beg you

Ut solita clementia                                             That – with your customary mercifulness -

Sis praesul ad custodiam                                   You will stand guard [over us]

 

From all ill dreams defend our eyes

From nightly fears and fantasies

Tread under foot our ghostly foe

That no pollution we may know

 

Praesta pater omnipotens                                  Stand beside [us] Father Almighty

Per Iesum Christum dominum                            Through Jesus Christ the Lord

Qui tecum in perpetuum                                    Who, with you, reigns for ever

Regnat cum sancto spiritu                                  With the Holy Spirit

 

Praesta pater omnipotens                                  Stand beside [us] Father Almighty

Per Iesum Christum dominum                            Through Jesus Christ the Lord

 

Te Lucis                                                           You … [before the ending] of the day

万物の創造主よ、光の終末の前に、

私たちはあなたを求めます。

私たちの長であり保護者である慈悲深き

あなたのために。
