Spem inAlium

40 voice motet by
Thomas Tallis
d. 1585

spem in alium numquam habui praeter in te
Deus Israel
qui irasceris
et propitius eris
et omnia peccata hominum in tribulatione dimittis

Domine Deus
Creator coeli et terra
respice humilitatem nostram

I have never put my hope in any other but in you
God of Israel
who will be angry
and yet become again gracious
and who forgives all the sins of suffering man

Lord God
Creator of Heaven and Earth
look upon our lowliness
