Text: Miserere mei, Deus

William Byrd (1540–1623)

Original Text English Translation
Miserere mei Deus
secundum magnam misericordiam tuam;
et secundum multitudinem
miserationum tuarum
dele iniquitatem meam.
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your great goodness;
and according to the multitude
of your mercies
wipe out my offences.
