Vere languores

Tomás Luis de Victoria

Vere languores nostros ipse tulit
et dolores nostros ipse portavit
cujus livore sanati sumus
Dulce lignum, dulce clavos, dulcia ferens pondera
quae sola fuistis digna sustinere
regem coelorum et Dominum
Truly, our failings he has taken upon himself
and our sorrows he has borne
By his wounds we have been saved
O sweet wood, O sweet nails that bore this sweet burden
which alone were worthy to support
the King of heaven and Lord


Tomás Luis de Victoria (c.1540-1611)
