The day of wrath, that day will dissolve the world in ashes, David being witness along with the Sibyl. Oh, what fear man's bosom rendeth, When from heaven the Judge descendeth, On whose sentence all dependeth. How great will be the quaking, when the Judge is about to come, strictly investigating Dies Irae things. Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth; Through earth's sepulchres it ringeth; All before the throne Koor & Barokorkest Van De Nederlandse Bach bringeth.
The trumpetscattering a wondrous sound through the sepulchres of the regions, will summon all before the throne. Death is struck, and nature quaking, All creation is awaking, To its Judge an answer making.
Death and nature will marvel, when the creature will rise again, to respond to the Judge. Lo, the book, exactly worded, Wherein all hath been recorded, Thence shall judgement be awarded. The written book will be brought forth, in which all is contained, from which the world shall be judged. When the Judge his seat attaineth, And each hidden deed arraigneth, Nothing unavenged remaineth. When therefore the Judge will sit, whatever lies hidden will appear: nothing will remain unpunished.
What shall I, frail man, be pleading? Who for me be interceding, When the just are mercy needing? What then will I, poor wretch [that I am], say?
Which patron will I entreat, when [even] the just may [only] Somebody Has To Pay - Verb.

King of fearsome majesty, Who gladly saves Muerte Violenta - Transmetal - El Llamado De La Hembra fit to be saved, save me, O font of mercy. Think, kind Jesu! Remember, merciful Jesus, that I am the cause of Your journey : lest you lose me in that day.
Faint and weary, Thou hast sought me, On the Cross of suffering bought me. Shall such grace be vainly brought me? Seeking me, you rested, tired: You redeemed [me], having suffered the Cross : let not such hardship be in vain. Righteous Judge, for sin's pollution Grant Thy gift of absolution, Ere the day of retribution. Just Judge of vengeance, make a gift of remission before the day of reckoning. I sigh, like the guilty one: my face reddens in guilt: Spare the imploring one, O God.
