Stanford, Charles Villiers: Justorum animae


Justorum animæ (1905)

Justorum animæ in manu Dei sunt,
et non tanget illos tormentum malitiæ.
Visi sunt oculis insipientium mori,
illi autem sunt in pace.

The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God,
and there no torment shall touch them.
In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die:
but they are in peace.

Words: Wisdom 3 vv. 1–3
Music: Charles Villiers Stanford (1852–1924)
