In Paradisum

Gabriel Fauré

In paradisum deducant angeli,
in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres
et perducant te
in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem.
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat
et cum Lazaro, quondam paupere,
aeternam habeas requiem.
May angels lead you into paradise,
martyrs receive you at your arrival
and bring you
to the holy city Jerusalem.
May the choir of angels receive you
and with Lazarus, once a pauper,
may you have eternal rest.

from the Requiem
