Justorum animae [The souls of the righteous] (Wisdom 3:1-3) – William Byrd
1 Justorum autem animae in manu Dei sunt, et non tanget illos tormentum mortis.
2 Visi sunt oculis insipientium mori, et aestimata est afflictio exitus illorum,
3 et quod a nobis est iter exterminium; illi autem sunt in pace:
1 The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and no torment shall touch them.
2 They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead;
and their passing away was thought an affliction
3 and their going forth from us, utter destruction.
But they are in peace.
