InSPIREd Sunday, Durham, England


Our Lady of Mercy & St. Godric's





One of my favorite pieces of music.
 
Hope you enjoy it as well.


English Translation:

"Word equal to the Very High one, our sole hope
Eternal of both the Earth and the Heavens
Of this peaceful night, we break the silence
Divine Saviour, cast your gaze down on us!
Spread on us the fire of your mighty grace
So all of Hell flees upon hearing your voice
Dissipate the sleep of a yearning soul
Which leads us to forget your laws!
Oh Christ, be favourable to this faithful people
Now gathered to bless you
Welcome the hymns they offer to your immortal glory
And may they come back fulfilled!"

Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends!
