Text

In Paradisum deducant Angeli in tuo
adventu suscipiant te Martyres
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem

Chorus Angelorum te suscipit
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
aeternam habeas requiem

Translation
May the angels receive them in Paradise,
at they coming may the martyrs receive thee
and bring thee into the holy city Jerusalem

There may the chorus of angels receive thee,
and with Lazarus, once a beggar,
may thou have eternal rest.
