Motet Translations

Heinrich Schütz: "Spes mea," SWV 69 - Cantiones Sacrae

St. Augustine

Spes mea, Christe Deus,
Hominum tu dulcis amator,
Lux, via, vita et salus,
Te deprecor, supplico et rogo,
Ut per te ambulem, ut te perveniam,
In te requiescam.

Christ God, my hope,
You, the sweet lover of humanity,
Light, pathway, life and salvation,
To You I pray, beseech, and ask
That I may walk with You, come to You,
Rest in You.
