Motet Translations

Henry Purcell: "Thou Knowest, Lord" from Funeral Anthem for Queen Mary, Z27

Book of Common Prayer, Order for the Burial of the Dead

Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts;
Shut not thy merciful ears unto our pray'rs;
But spare us, Lord most holy, O God most mighty.
O holy and most merciful Saviour,
Thou most worthy Judge eternal,
Suffer us not at our last hour,
For any pains of death to fall away from Thee.
