Motet Translations

Heinrich Schütz: "Heu mihi," SWV 65 - Cantiones Sacrae

Responsory for the Office of the Dead

Heu mihi, Domine,
quia peccavi nimis in vita mea,
quid faciam miser,
ubi fugiam,
nisi ad te, Deus meus?
Dum veneris in novissimo die,
miserere mei.
Woe is me, O Lord,
for I have sinned so greatly in my life.
What am I, poor one, to do,
where am I to flee,
if not to you, my God?
When you come on the last day of all,
have mercy on me.
