Contents: Part I. Prelude --
Jesu, Maria, -I am near to death --
Kyrie eleison --
Rouse thee, my fainting soul --
Be merciful, be gracious; spare him, Lord --
Sanctus fortis, danctus deus --
I can no more --
Rescue him, O Lord, in this his evil hour --
Novissima hora est --
Proficiscere anima Christiana --
Go, in the name of angels and archangels. Part II. Introduction --
I went to sleep; and now I am refreshed --
My work is done, my task is o'er --
All hail, my chil and brother, hail! --
Lowborn clods of brute earth --
It is the restless panting of their being --
The mind bold and independent --
I see not those false spirits --
Praise to the holiest in the height --
The sound is like the rushing of the wind --
Glory to him --
They sin of thy approaching agony --
But hark! a grand mysterious harmony --
And now the threshold as we traverse it --
Praise to the holiest in the height --
Thy judgment now is near --
Jesu! by that shuddering dread which fell on thee --
Be merciful, be gracious, spare him, Lord --
Praise to his name --
Take me away --
Lord, thou hast been our refuge --
Softly and gently, dearly ransomed soul --
Lord, thou hast been our refuge --
Praise to the holiest.
