In Paradisum

by Jerric Chong

In paradisum deducant te Angeli:
They come now, those harbingers so bright,
In tuo adventu suscipiant te Martyres,
Beckoning thee at the celestial gate:
Et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem.
’Tis at unity with itself; gladly go thou in.

But O what glories shalt thou then behold?
Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat,
Those who stand before the throne; thus
Et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
Freed from torment, thou rejoicest everlastingly.
Aeternam habeas requiem.
