Heinrich Schütz

Heu mihi, Domine,
quia peccavi nimis in vita mea,
quid faciam miser,
ubi fugiam,
nisi ad te, Deus meus?
Dum veneris in novissimo die,
miserere mei.

Woe is me, O Lord,
for I have sinned so greatly in my life.
What am I, poor one, to do,
where am I to flee,
if not to you, my God?
When you come on the last day of all,
have mercy on me.

Responsory for the Office of the Dead
