Tallis, Thomas: Derelinquit impius

Derelinquit impius

Derelinquit impius viam suam, et vir iniquus cogitationes suas, et revertatur ad Dominum, et miserebitur ejus, quia benignus et misericors est, et praestabilis super malitia Dominus Deus noster.

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him. For the Lord our God is gracious and merciful, and repenteth him of the evil.

Words: Matins Responsory, First Sunday in Lent (Roman Rite)
Music: Thomas Tallis (1505–85)
