Parce mihi, Domine [Spare me, Lord] (Job 7:16-21) – Cristóbal de Morales

 

Cristóbal de Morales

Cristóbal de Morales

Job 7:16-21 [Latin]

16 I loathe it; I would not live alway: let me alone; for my days are vanity.

17 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?

18 And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

19 How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?

20 I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?

21 And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away my iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.

Parce mihi, Domine from Officium Defunctorum (c.1548-1553) by Cristóbal de Morales (c.1500-1553)

Job 30:31, 7:16b [Latin][Latin]

31 My harp also is turned to mourning, and my organ into the voice of them that weep.
