Heinrich Schütz

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.

St. Augustine
