Heinrich Schütz: "Bone Jesu," SWV 313 - Kleine Geistliche Konzerte II

from Augustine: Meditations

soprano I, soprano II

Bone Jesu, verbum Patris,
splendor paternae gloriae,
in quem desiderant angeli prospicere,
doce me facere voluntatem tuam,
ut a spiritu tuo bono deductus
ad beatam illam perveniam civitatem,
ubi est dies aeternus
et unus omnium spiritus,
ubi est certa securitas
et secura aeternitas
et aeterna tranquillitas,
et tranquilla felicitas,
et felix suavitas,
et secura jucunditas,
ubi tu Deus cum Patre
et Spiriti Sancto vivis et regnas
per infinita seculorum secula,
Amen.

O good Jesus, Word of the Father,
splendor of the Father's glory,
on whom the angels long to gaze,
teach me to do Your will,
so that, led by Your kind spirit
I might aspire to Your blessed city,
where there is everlasting day
and one spirit for all,
where there is certain assurance
and an assured eternity,
and eternal peace
and peaceful happiness,
and happy sweetness,
and certain delight,
where You, God, with the Father
and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns
through infinite ages of ages,
Amen.
