Requiem ~ Music of the Requiem by Gabriel Faure.  Beautiful.

In Paradisum

In paradisum deducant te Angeli;
May angels lead you into paradise;

in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres,
upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you,

et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem.
and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem.

Chorus angelorum te suscipiat,
May the ranks of angels receive you,

et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
and with Lazarus, once a poor man

aeternam habeas requiem.
may you have eternal rest.

~ Gabriel Faure
