About the text

Lux æterna is an excerpt from the Requiem mass.


Latin text

Lux æterna luceat eis, Domine:
Cum Sanctis tuis in æternum:
quia pius es.
Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine:
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Cum Sanctis tuis in æternum:
quia pius es.

English translation

May light eternal shine upon them, O LORD,
with Thy Saints for evermore:
for Thou art gracious.
Eternal rest give to them, O LORD,
and let perpetual light shine upon them:
With Thy Saints for evermore,
for Thou art gracious.
